The Purpose

To create urgency and immediate impact on students of color, and culturally and linguistically diverse students using culturally responsive practices and policies, while building racial equity awareness and skills with Shoreline staff. The work of the equity department expands throughout all district departments and programs. The goal is to lead and develop with equity in mind while examining and shifting  the inequities in our procedures, policies and practices. This work attends to hearts and minds so that we can make changes in structures and systems. The students are our non-negotiable WHY. 

Our Value Statement

We value all diversity in our students and families and staff. Our hearts are with every group that has ever been targeted, been historically marginalized, been harassed, been abused, been publicly mocked and any other hurtful action. Shoreline students, families and staff should thrive and flourish. We aim to create the environment where that happens for us all.

Anti racism quote oluo

 "The beauty of anti-racism is that you don't have to pretend to be free of Racism to be an Anti-Racist. Antiracism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it. Including in yourself.  And it's the only way forward."- Ijeoma Oluo
