Working collaboratively, we strive to raise the achievement of all students, raise achievement outcomes for our lowest performing students while still maintaining our focus on high academic standards for all students, and ensure that all students, regardless of their racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic background have access to rigorous academic programs. It is the goal of the Bellevue School District to provide all students with a quality education experience and to help all students achieve success. To ensure the district achieves this goal, we look into factors that not always considered, such as the race and culture of the students we serve. We accomplish this by:
- Developing professional development for district staff
- Advising on updates to district policies and procedures
- Supporting leadership within student groups
- Building connections with families
