To achieve educational equity, the district is committed to the following:
- Systematically using districtwide and individual school level data, disaggregated to inform district decision making -- in context of equity best practices of state and national districts.
- Raising the achievement, academic and social-emotional learning of all its students while narrowing the gap between the lowest and the highest performing students.
- Eliminating the predictability and disparity in all aspects of education and its administration, including but not limited to, the disproportionate representation of students by race, poverty, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation and national origin in discipline, special education and in various advanced learning.
- Graduate all students reeady to succeed in a diverse local, national and global community.
YouthTruth Survey Information
The Lake Oswego School District undertook a districtwide climate survey during the 2018-2019 school year. The survey gave our key stakeholders, including students, parents and staff, a means of providing feedback that will assist the District in understanding perceptions as we pursue continuous improvement in strengthening relationships across and among stakeholders.
Jimmy Simpson, Partnership Lead for YouthTruth Student Survey, provided an overall highlight of trends from this survey at the Lake Oswego School Board meeting on September 9, 2019.
