- Identify students who need additional supports and services for academic and behavioral success.
- Identify and work to eliminate systemic barriers that restrict access and acquisition of educational preparation necessary for college readiness; especially for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underserved.
- Ensure that students have access to the full range of options and opportunities available in Granite School District.
