Elevate student voices in a collaborative partnership to effect positive systemic change in our schools, community and nation;
Partner with deliberate engagement and inclusion of all families;
Recognition of the deep value of a diverse staff and administration, and the continued effort to recruit and retain employees of color;
Acknowledgement of ourselves as leaders in the effort to transform our schools and communities, the long-term commitment for action and results and the desire to be held accountable for the changes we seek; and
Use of our voices as representatives of the community to proactively speak out against acts of racial and social injustice.
