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 County Office 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. Learn more with the SDCOE Equity Blueprint for Action (PDF).
