Focus on the Individual
CM201U honors the uniqueness of each individual. We believe that our strength as a community comes from the diverse experiences and perspectives of our students, families, and staff members. CM201U strives to be a learning community where students of all races, gender identities and expressions, ethnic backgrounds, social classes, sexual orientations, linguistic backgrounds, and abilities are welcomed, valued, and empowered. We embrace diverse values, beliefs, and points of view, and strive to prepare students for lives in a multicultural society.

Focus on Systems
The success of our students and our organization lies in our ability to create and sustain educational equity within our systems. We believe that educational equity is achievable through the intentional identification and dismantling of oppressive systems within our classrooms, our schools, and our community. Dismantling these systems requires a commitment to reflecting deeply on the culture, climate, policies, and practices of the district through an anti-racist, anti-oppressive lens, as well as a commitment to eliminating disparities within the organization.

District Commitments
We will
foster authentic relationships among and between students, staff, and the community.

We will analyze data through a culturally responsive lens in order to direct resources, opportunities and supports based on student, staff, and community need.

We will actively recruit diverse staff and provide a working environment that ensures all perspectives are represented.

We will identify and remove barriers in our current policies, procedures, systems, or practices that limit opportunities for our students which results in different outcomes for various student groups.

We will promote cultural competency. A world-class education requires racial consciousness, cross-cultural and disability awareness, and gender equity.

We will eliminate achievement predictability based on race/ethnicity, gender identity, family income, disabilities, and linguistic background to ensure all students will reach their fullest human potential.

We will ensure all groups are meaningfully and authentically represented in our curriculum.

We will empower our students to demonstrate agency by actively engaging them in the process of creating equity within our system.
