Board of Education Equity Statement
Lodi Unified School District honors the uniqueness of each individual and embraces their diverse backgrounds, values, and points of view. Our students come to us with unique interests and needs. It is our duty to work with our students, staff, and families, to build a strong inclusive educational community and to prepare students for lives in a multicultural society.
We further believe that eliminating disparities in educational opportunities is fundamental to the nature of public education. Therefore, Lodi Unified is committed to helping students overcome barriers to learning through research-based practices.
We maintain that is it the primary goal of this school district to ensure that each and every one of our students meets or exceeds California State education standards, and that it is our responsibility to give all students the opportunity to develop competencies in all aspects of the educational experience.
