OSD Goals & Equity Statement

Ontario School District Equity Statement

The Ontario School District prioritizes equity in every decision: "Our Children, Our Future." For Ontario, that is more than a tagline; it is our educational and operational philosophy.
Our commitment to our students and our future is to value all students and meet their individual learning needs while concurrently developing their understanding and respect of the differences that make each student unique. Preparing them for post-secondary education and/or career success and preparing our students to live in an inclusive, global community and world.

As a District, we aim to close the achievement gap within our diverse student population and work to remove the barriers that stand in the way of our student's educational successes. Understanding and celebrating our community's rich diversity lends to our commitment to ensuring an equitable and respectful learning environment for every student, family, and staff member regardless of: Race, Gender, Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation, Socioeconomic Status, Ability, Home or First Language, Religion, National Origin, Age, and Physical Appearance.
