OFFICE OF EQUITY
December 2016

Dear Friends,
 
Welcome to the OUSD Office of Equity!

The new 
Office of Equity will focus on helping ALL students achieve academically and socio-emotionally so that they graduate ready for college, career, and community success. 


THE OFFICE OF EQUITY WAS ESTABLISHED TO:
  • eliminate the predictability of success and failure that currently correlates with any social or cultural factor
     
  • interrupt inequitable practices, examine biases, and create inclusive and just conditions for all students
     
  • discover and cultivate the unique gifts, talents, and interests that every student possesses

This year, the Office of Equity welcomes new Directors, Nzingha Dugas, Director of African American Girls and Young Women Achievement and Jerome Gourdine, Director of African American Male Achievement. We will recruit and onboard new Directors for Latino/a Student Achievement and Asian Pacific Islander Student Achievement in 2017.

Please take time to read the program newsletters that are linked below. In the coming months we will add additional programs.

The Office of Equity understands that we must ensure EQUITY before we can enjoy EQUALITY. We need your support now more than ever.


May you and yours enjoy a peaceful holiday season.

In the spirit,
Bro. Chris

Christopher P. Chatmon
Deputy Chief of Equity
(Founding Executive Director of African American Male Achievement)
