Purpose Statement (Developed 10/8/2020:The purpose of the Anti-Racism and Equity team is to confront, actively address and eliminate institutional, systemic and structural racism at HS 1327.

We will focus on the advancement and implemention of anti-racist policies and a zero tolerance agenda for hate, prejudice and discrimination in our classrooms and on our campus.
We will partner with staff, students, parents and subject matter experts to disrupt all oppressive, colorblind, biased and white supremacist systems, practices and behaviors that currently persist within our school, district and community.
We will work in concert with the school administration to ensure that all educators have the requisite tools and training to support more equitable outcomes for our students. We will support the school’s outreach and communication efforts to ensure all families in our school community are well served and represented and given access to appropriate counselling, administrative and educational resources.
