of race, ethnicity, family economics, mobility, language,
gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability,
initial proficiencies, and religion.

perpetuate disparities and disproportionate outcomes for
students in historically marginalized populations.

for action and develop pathways to successful outcomes
for each student, prioritizing historically marginalized
