Equity and Inclusion
South Whidbey School District is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment of all of our staff, students and families. Our Board adopted an inclusive non-discrimination clause and we stand by all members of our community. The District does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age, marital status, military status, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity or the presence of disability.
South Whidbey School District Administrators and multiple staff members participate in 30 hours of equity training over the course of four months. The goal is to build capacity within our own district for leading the courageous conversations related to equity. The training was led by Dr. Caprice Hollins, author of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Strategies for Facilitating Conversations on Race.
The district is committed to digital citizenship by promoting responsible, ethical use of technology. Our students are taught to be safe and kind online and to be aware of their digital "footprint". (See more here).
