Racial Equity Work Overview and Statement

Racial equity for students in Marin will be achieved when race and ethnicity no longer predict the outcome of a young person's educational future.  As a Marin Promise Partner, our organization commits to identify and dismantle racial inequities, and to provide equity-based supports, so that our most vulnerable children can achieve their full potential. 

- Adopted by the Leadership Council of Marin Promise Partnership, April 2019   


Staff, students and families will report feeling a part of a trusting, inclusive community that values multiple perspectives. This learning community will eliminate the predictability of student access and outcomes based on race or socioeconomic status.



We believe that...

  • The success of all students is our individual and collective responsibility 
  • Instructional practices can mitigate the impact of any external factors on achievement
  • Equity is a personal and professional journey
  • All people can grow and learn
  • Racism is endemic in our society and our systems and it is our responsibility to be actively anti-racist


In light of our beliefs, we will...

  • Hold high expectations for all staff, students and families
  • Disrupt and eliminate racist policies and practices
  • Build trusting relationships among all stakeholders through engagement, honesty and learning other perspectives
  • Use data to measure our progress and inform our practices on eliminating our opportunity  gaps
  • Continuously develop our collective capacity around equity and anti-racist leadership
  • Provide culturally-relevant curriculum and engage in culturally-responsive practices
  • Develop the cultural proficiency of all stakeholders
