Equity Statement

LPS Equity Statement


Ledyard Public Schools will hold itself accountable, at every level, to intentionally allocate resources and expand opportunities to achieve equitable student outcomes. We acknowledge that systemic injustices exist and must be eradicated. As a public school district, we recognize our collective power to make change and improve student experiences. That power includes validating injustices, recognizing the value of diversity, and embracing policies and practices that ensure ALL students, especially those who have been historically marginalized based on race/ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender, age, socio-economic status, immigrant status, educational status, or religion have equitable experiences that eliminate the opportunity gap.
