8-Point Commitment to Educational Justice

San Juan Unified strives to provide a physically and psychologically safe learning environment for every student, every day. While developing policies, establishing standard practices, creating new and analyzing current programs and making decisions, San Juan Unified uses an equity lens to target and eliminate barriers for all students.

8-Point Commitment to Educational Justice

San Juan Unified commits to a more just and more equitable society, free of racism and other forms of prejudice. We are committed to the ideals of anti-racist and social justice-oriented education. We recommend the pursuit of the following strategies:

  1. Improve school culture to be more inclusive and provide diverse representation at all sites
  2. Build our collective capacity to have courageous conversations and interrupting both implicit and explicit racial inequities 
  3. Expand and prioritize family and student voice 
  4. Embed equity training within robust offerings of professional development
  5. Integrate anti-racist/anti-bias instruction within our curriculum
  6. Systematize site/department level conversations around equitable practices as well as anti-racist/ anti-bias actions.
  7. Increase workforce diversity through retention, career development and recruitment
  8. Establish a Networked Improvement Community (NIC) to create equitable access to schools, programs, and rigorous coursework
