Welcome to the Equity and Family Engagement Department
MLK His legacy is everyday.
Shoreline Equity and Family Engagement Department
The Purpose: To create urgency and immediate impact on students of color, and culturally and linguistically diverse students using culturally responsive practices and policies, while building racial equity awareness and skills with Shoreline staff. The work of the equity department expands throughout all district departments and programs. The goal is to lead and develop with equity in mind while examining and shifting the inequities in our procedures, polices and practices. This work attends to hearts and minds so that we can make changes in structures and systems. The students are our non-negotiable WHY.
Seeking Volunteers for the Point in Time Count

Disrupting Islamophobia Amid U.S.-Iran Tension (Teaching Tolerance)
As news breaks about increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran, your students may encounter Islamophobic comments or sentiments. These resources can help ensure that you’re ready to interrupt and address Islamophobia if it appears in your classroom or school—and that you’re ready to help students do the same.
#USvsHate (“us versus hate”) is about embracing inclusion and justice for all in our diverse schools and society. Our messages insist publicly that all people are equally valuable.
In #USvsHate, students are invited to create public anti-hate messages in any media for their school communities. Our national challenge then amplifies student voices for a nationwide audience. You can submit up to 3 per month!
We value all diversity in our students and families and staff.
Our hearts are with every group that has ever been targeted, been historically marginalized, been harassed, been abused, been publicly mocked and any other hurtful action. Shoreline students, familes and staff should thrive and flourish. Please hold us accountable to that.
