Equity | The primary responsibility of the Mukilteo School District is to ensure that each student graduates career and college ready. Students shall be educated in environments that respect them as individuals, respect their families, and respect their cultural heritage in order to facilitate successful academic outcomes. This means each student is known by name, strength, and need.

The Board acknowledges that institutional racism exists and that longstanding institutional biases have resulted in significant, measurable, system-wide achievement inequities for students. Understanding how individual identities such as race, language abilities, religion, disabilities, socioeconomic status, country of origin, sexual orientation, and gender intersect with education will allow us to reduce instances of inequity and dis-proportionality. Our shared focus is to eliminate racism, inequities, and institutional bias, which will help increase achievement and graduation rates for all students, while narrowing the academic and opportunity gaps between the highest and lowest performing students.
