Equity-Oriented Strategic Plan

Our Equity Commitment

Holt Public Schools is committed to creating an environment in which every member of our community is seen, heard, valued, and welcomed. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to this endeavor. Currently, our student body is approximately 43% BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) with significant ethnic diversity and representation from historically marginalized groups. We seek to ensure our diverse student body is celebrated and well-served. Over the next three years, we will engage in implementing our Equity-Oriented Strategic Plan as we listen, plan, and enact changes to make a considerable positive impact on all members of our learning community, with specific attention to those we have been historically underserved.


EOSP goals are designed to intentionally highlight systemic barriers and avoid placing ownership of areas of growth on those most impacted by these barriers. The achievement of each goal is directly tied to the successful and long-standing implementation of the initiatives connected to it.


Innovate. Educate. Inspire.
