Leading for Equity
The Snoqualmie Valley School District engages with the community to ensure every student achieves an excellent education, focused on the SVSD’s mission to prepare students for college, career, and citizenship. To fully realize our mission, it is imperative we dismantle the institutional barriers which uphold racism and bias against marginalized groups and contribute to the pervasive, disparate educational outcomes within our school system. Because we value individual human differences we commit to establishing and maintaining a culture that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. The values of diversity, equity, and inclusion are inextricably linked to our mission, and we embrace these values as being critical to the development, learning, and success of all.
We acknowledge that:
- Diversity makes us stronger when we value every individual’s uniqueness, abilities, perspectives and contributions.
- Equity is realized when we remove systemic, cultural, and physical barriers that lead to diminished opportunities and disproportionate outcomes for students
- Inclusion is the intentional creation of conditions where every individual is heard, respected, supported, and empowered.
Common Religious and Public Holiday
The Common Religious and Public Holiday calendar provides insight into the diversity of our school community. We have highlighted many religious and cultural observances celebrated within our community. Please note that this calendar does not cover all holidays that students may observe and they may practice the same religion differently.
