This Learning Brief, through a case study approach featuring the Sausalito Marin City School District and its Superintendent Dr. Itoco Garcia, looks at how Marin Educators for Equity Initiative Partners are working together to increase their BIPOC educator workforce so that it more closely aligns with the demographics of the county’s student population.
Our county’s persistent educational equity gap is unacceptable. Marin Promise Partners invite the next Superintendent of Schools to join us in refusing to settle for a world in which a child’s educational potential is dictated by race, ethnicity, zip code or financial circumstance. Let’s unite to put educational equity at the center of the election.
Marin Promise Partnership is one of 7 communities across the country that have been involved in the Strive Together Systems Transformation Systems Indicator project. Out of this work, Marin Promise Partnership created a Learning Brief on Antiracist Education that focuses on several of the Systems Indicators, especially the Culturally Responsive Curriculum indicator.
Rooted in community, the collaborative summer efforts of Partners in West Marin focused on meeting the social-emotional needs of students through play & togetherness. For the first time in 25 years, Shoreline Unified School District was able to offer summer programming to students and ensure equitable access for students of color and students experiencing poverty.
