The LWHS Racial Equity Team is comprised of administrators, teachers, classified personnel, and parents who believe strongly in differentiating instruction for all students, who have taught in Black and Brown communities, and who are passionate about addressing white fragility, white supremacy, institutional racism and other issues that prohibit BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities from reducing the achievement gap.
Our team will focus on the following objectives to further our mission:
- Safety for our Black students and other racial minority groups
- Discipline policies and procedures
- Decolonizing curriculum
- Grading practices
- Professional Development
- Outreach, including student, parent, district, and the wider community
