    Through an equity lens, all teachers intentionally and collectively plan for and reflect on instruction and teach grade level standards to provide all students opportunities to succeed.



    We have a moral obligation to assist students in developing their skills and talents as they learn about themselves and the world around them, and work toward reaching their highest potential.
