Addressing the Opportunity Gap is a community campaign to raise at least $100,000 to accelerate and expand our school district’s equity work. The Portland Promise, our schools’ comprehensive plan, has a goal of rooting out systemic and ongoing inequities in our schools.
Your donation will go towards initiatives including:
- Developing Wabanaki and local Black history curriculum
- Purchasing culturally responsive books and resources, including texts written by Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) authors
- Providing professional development for preK-12 teachers and other staff
