Equity and Access

Equity and Access for All Students

The Chula Vista Elementary School District is working towards eliminating opportunity gaps by providing equitable educational experiences for each and every student. Supporting and fostering students’ excellence in academic pursuits occurs by focusing on the whole child—their race, culture, language, heritage, gender/expression, and experiences. The unique aspects of each individual are valued by educators and used to inform students’ learning and development. At the Chula Vista Elementary School District, we believe “Each child is an individual of great worth!

At a time in our country when so much misinformation is being spread, it is important to share the reality of the hard work of our staff. To get the facts on the district’s Equity Policy and learn how all children are supported by this policy, please visit:

A Safe and Diverse School for All

The Chula Vista Elementary School District is a safe and welcoming district for all students and their families. Guided by student achievement data and other forms of evidence, we will ensure that our academic instruction in language arts and mathematics actively works to close opportunity gaps between students identified as fluent English only and those in our identified target groups, including English Learners, Students with Disabilities, Foster Youth, Homeless Youth, Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) youth, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning + (LGBTQ+ youth) and Socioeconomically Disadvantaged students. We are conscious of providing age-appropriate and developmentally-appropriate lessons and activities around identity that meet all of our students’ needs when addressing the diversity of our community, including LGBTQ-visibility and inclusion. Our goal is to work together as one community through this practice. We encourage you to reach out to us or our teachers throughout the year if you have any questions or would like further information as we support our students in this important work.
