Federal law, under the Every Student Succeeds Act, requires local education agencies that receive Title I funding to develop an equity plan (Bishop-Watt, 2019). In the Anchorage School District (hereby referred to as ASD or the district) the vision of the Superintendent and ASD’s School Board are aligned in providing equitable resources and outcomes for children. Equity has not lived in one place but is occurring throughout the district via Staff and Hiring, Student Achievement, and Community Engagement. This site is dedicated to providing resources to promote equity.
