To institutionalize equity in order to provide a quality and excellent education for all culturally and linguistically diverse students.
Culturally Responsive Community and Classrooms
Granite School District is a culturally responsive community with culturally responsive classrooms. Educational Equity provides educators with strategies and knowledge to increase academic achievement and build community in diverse classrooms.
The Alternative Language Program
No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. (Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964)
There is no equality of treatment merely by providing students with the same facilities, textbooks, teachers, and curriculum; for students who do not understand English are effectively foreclosed from any meaningful education. (Lau v. Nichols, 1974)
As a result of Title VI and Lau v. Nichols, we follow the regulations of Title I, Title III and the Office of Civil Rights. In addition, each school complies with Granite School District’s OCR plan.
