Equity is a core value within the Salem Public Schools. We support each student's unique path to achieving high standards regardless of ethnicity, race, color, economic status, national origin, age, abilities, religion, parental or immigration status, political beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, language, gender identity, or gender expression. Valuing equity means that we:

  • reflect and embrace the greater diversity of our students and families
  • recognize that systems of oppression marginalize some populations and suppress some voices
  • bear a collective responsibility to recognize, interrupt, and transform educational inequities
  • champion access and inclusion for all students/families/staff
  • allocate resources so that the students/families/staff who need the most get the most
  • work to be an anti-racist and culturally responsive community
  • commit to create a more just and equitable world for all of our students
