At SPPS and in school districts around the country, students of color perform at lower academic levels than their white counterparts - regardless of socioeconomic status. Closing the achievement gap is an urgent need for SPPS, with a student population that is 76% students of color and 30% of students receiving English Learner Services.
Our goal is to eliminate racial disproportionality and predictability of achievement by accelerating the achievement of our lowest performing students and increasing achievement for all students.
Our commitment to excellence in equity is the foundation for the Strong Schools, Strong Communities Strategic Plan - in the classroom, in school choice and in the assignment of resources. Our plan seeks to transform classrooms, thereby transforming lives, families, neighborhoods and touching our entire community.
