In fall 2016, Superintendent Nancy Coogan and a team from Tukwila School District, including students, presented to more than 80 district superintendents, board members, and other education leaders from across the State.
Tukwila is only one of two districts in the state that has developed a Race and Equity Policy. The Tukwila team explained the Tukwila values and philosophy, how the policy was developed, and next steps in implementation. They also explained that Student Voice is considered to be critical in the work of our school system.
In preparation for this convening by the Puget Sound Educational Service District, we asked students from across the K-12 spectrum about their views on Racial and Equity. Enjoy Race and Equity: Tukwila students speak their truth.
