    • Individuals preparing for non-traditional fields
    • Single parents, including single pregnant women
    • Out-of-workforce individuals
    • English learners
    • Homeless individuals
    • Youth who are in, or have aged out of the foster care system

    What is Educational Equity?

    The goal of educational equity is for all students to share an equal opportunity to learn and to achieve, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, disability or gender. To provide all students a safe and equitable school environment is an on-going challenge to public school officials and the greater educational community.
