Educational equity means students have access, opportunities, and supports to thrive in school, achieve a meaningful diploma, and lead a choice-filled life. This requires a systemic approach that flexibly responds to the needs of students, when they need it, and how they need it. Social or cultural factors should not predict whether or not students are prepared for college and career.
To deliver on the promise of educational equity for all students, the San Diego County Board of Education is committed to providing educational opportunities and support to district and school leaders, teachers and other stakeholders so that all students, including our historically underserved students, are served well and are successful.
The Equity department supports this effort by providing equity-focused services to schools and districts, charter organizations, independent, and Juvenile Court and Community Schools throughout San Diego County.

Equity Blueprint for action
Focuses on improving educational outcomes for three student groups: African American, American Indian, and Latinx.
The Equity Conference is an opportunity to grow and learn as we work to make our campuses safe spaces for all students, staff members, and families, where they feel honored and valued. The 2022 conference is Jan. 19-20, with an optional pre-conference workshop on the Jan. 18.
