    Seattle Public Schools Board Policy No. 0030: Ensuring Educational & Racial Equity states that "the district shall provide professional development to strengthen employees' knowledge and skills for eliminating opportunity gaps and other disparities in achievement."

    The purpose of the Equity & Race Professional Development is to eliminate the racial opportunity gap while increasing achievement for every student. Through professional development and coaching, we partner with district and instructional leaders, families, and community partners to transform policy and practice.
