    We believe that the responsibility for student success is broadly shared by District staff, administrators, instructors,communities, and families. We are focused on closing the opportunity gap and creating learning communities that provide support and academic enrichment programs for all students. Additionally, we believe that it is the right of every student to have an equitable educational experience.
