Superintendent's Equity Council
Peñasco ISD is committed to educational fairness and opportunity for all racial and ethnic groups and academic excellence and personal success for each and every student in our school district. Central to this commitment is educational equity. Educational equity means raising the achievement of all students while (1) addressing the achievement gaps between the lowest and highest performing students; and (2) eliminating the racial and socio-economic predictability or disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories.
The purpose of the Superintendent’s Equity Council is to provide leadership in creating an equity plan based on a Martinez and Yazzie readiness assessment at the district level, specific to the needs of economically disadvantaged students, Native American students, English learners, and students with disabilities. The mission of the Equity Council is to ensure Peñasco ISD engages students in the highest quality of learning, prepares students for responsible productive citizenship, and inspires students to be college and career ready regardless of ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
