Ravenswood's Antiracist Commitment
The Ravenswood City School District acknowledges that racism has an inherent and permanent impact on our students’ lives. We actively work to systematically dismantle the racist structures and practices in our schools.
In order to be antiracist, we must:
Rely on the communities we serve to guide and inform the decisions we make about our curriculum, program and practice
Examine every policy, curriculum, assessment and personnel decision and make changes as necessary
Root our work in and centered around the rich cultures of our students, families and community
Provide learning environments and opportunities that help students and staff be self-aware, to self reflect, have empathy, understand societal context and practice abolitionist teaching
Develop students’ self advocacy to be an agent of change through explicit antiracist discussion, practice and action
SP 1: Engage students with relevant, rigorous and standards-aligned instruction, supports and materials
