Serving all aspects of The Bellingham Promise, equity, diversity, and inclusion supports equitable change in academic, social, and cultural development. We support teaching & learning, professional development, community engagement, and human resources, co-creating opportunities for growth, dialogue, and access.
Bellingham Public Schools continues to sharpen our focus on equitable change, recognizing the benefits of growth in our community. We are proud to be a constant work in progress. We are committed to providing and sustaining inclusive education for each student in our district.
To accomplish our mission, we will develop and support initiatives to:
- Remove institutional and systemic barriers to success,
- Increase equitable access to resources,
- Integrate diverse cultures, heritages, and identities in our classrooms, policies, and practices, and
- Advance and amplify historically silenced voices and stories in education.
