Our Commitment to Equity
We are committed to promoting equity in all facets of the Preschool Promise, with the goal of ensuring that all children, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, abilities or socioeconomic status, are fully ready to learn when they start Kindergarten.
Our strategies to promote equity include:
• Ensuring our own team and all Preschool Promise coaches are trained about implicit bias and how those biases limit children's success and can create an unhealthy classroom culture.
• Providing culturally responsive teacher training to Preschool Promise program administrators and classroom teachers.
• Consulting experts to assist us in crafting and reviewing policies and procedures that, however inadvertently, may put Preschool Promise children and their families at a disadvantage or negatively impact Preschool programs.
• Consistently reviewing data on student achievement and learning - broken down by race,
ethnicity, gender and socioeconomic status - to ensure that our decisions and practices are benefitting all children.
