Equity Work at Campolindo:
An Overview of Current Initiatives and a Commitment to Do More
As racial equity work at Campolindo expands, transparency and accountability are essential. The site administration is partnering with students, staff, and parents to ensure that all stakeholders receive timely information about challenges and progress. The Parents Club Bulletin, the Campo Daily Bulletin, the school's website, and Principal messages will include updates on the school's racial equity work. Groups such as the Campolindo School Site Council, Parents Club, Instructional Council, Equity Team, ASB Leadership, and Diversity and Inclusion Committee regularly address racial equity efforts.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Action Plan
The Campolindo High School Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Action Plan is now available for stakeholders to review. This plan was collaboratively developed by staff with critical input from student leaders and the Parent Club’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Please use the following link to access the action plan: CHS Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Action Plan.
English Curriculum Update (11/09/2020): The Campolindo English Department has demonstrated a tremendous commitment to building a curriculum that reflects and honors diverse voices. Department members have adopted an array of new texts by female authors and authors of color; in addition, they are actively building lessons that foster diversity, equity, and inclusion. The following document highlights some of the excellent work by the English Department: CHS English -- Equity in Practice.

The Campolindo Pledge
In August, students will have an opportunity to learn about and take the Campolindo Pledge. You may review the pledge via the following link: Campolindo Pledge 2020.
Over the past two years, Campolindo has hosted multiple parent education events on diversity and equity. These events were not well attended. Last fall, the Campolindo Parents Club started the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and recent meetings of this group have been powerful. School and parent leaders will work to ensure that racial equity work is not tangential to the school's traditional priorities. Racial equity work needs to be central. Through parent forums, presentations, book clubs, advocacy, and other strategies, the school-parent partnership around racial equity will be strong.
