Spokane Public Schools is committed to providing an inclusive and accepting environment for all students. Our schools offer a range of experiences that create community and develop understanding and awareness. Promoting equity is a core value as all district stakeholders are responsible for ensuring staff, students, and families feel welcome and connected.
To support equity and inclusion, SPS partners with the Spokane Education Association, Washington Education Association, and the University of Washington to provide training for staff on Culturally Responsive Classroom Strategies. These trainings focus on promoting cultural awareness, inclusive strategies, and building strong school communities.
Each school provides a range of activities that promote equity and inclusion. Examples include student clubs, classroom meetings, school-wide assemblies, Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), course curriculum, monthly celebrations, and awareness campaigns.
Contact your student’s principal to learn how equity and inclusion is promoted in your student’s school.
