East Penn Definition of Equity

Equity in education means that opportunities are differentiated to ensure all students have access to the resources, programs, and experiences that they need to feel safe and supported. In East Penn we believe in removing barriers to learning and commit to fairly distributing access, opportunity, and participation.

We use four frames to examine situations from an equity lens: structural, societal, socio-economic, and cultural.

The February 1, 2024 Hornet Huddle was written by our No Place For Hate organization. Students had to move in concentric circles to discuss important topics of acceptance and belonging and to share some information about themselves in order to build connections between the students in homeroom.
