Vision It is the moral and ethical responsibility and a top priority for Seattle Public Schools to provide Equitable Access and Opportunity for every Student, and to eliminate racial inequity in our educational and administrative system. We have historically underserved specific populations of students and we must address this issue to eliminate disproportionality in education and in all aspects of its administration.

Mission The mission for the Equity and Race Relations Department is to develop and support a research based model for the Seattle School District which will institutionalize educational and racial equity for every student, in every school, every day.

The Equity and Race Relations Department is working with administrators, central office staff, and upper level administration, as well as classroom educators and specialists who impact our students on a daily basis. All staff will receive Professional Development in cultural proficiency and all educators will receive PD in culturally responsive evidenced-based instruction with the support they need to equitably serve each and every student.
