Equity in education seeks to provide appropriate resources and remove any barriers to achievement brought about due to personal circumstances so that all students can reach their full potential. To learn more about Equity in the Chicago Public School System,  check out the CPS' Equity Initiative as well as the extensive CPS Equity Framework document.


The OPS Equity Committee strives to support Oriole Park School's mission to create an equitable learning environment for all through assessment, evaluation, and dialogue. 


Our role is to make recommendations, suggestions and inquiries to the Local School Council (LSC) based on the following:

* Identify and share resources to proactively promote and equitable learning environment 

* Support proceedures that enable students, families, and staff to share experiences

* Analyze information, perform gap analysis, and request supplemental information from a variety of sources that relate to equity to inform our decision making
