Equity and Excellence

Somerville Public Schools are deeply committed to improving equity of opportunity and access for every student in our district. The position of Director of Equity and Excellence was created in summer 2019 to that end.

The Director of Equity and Excellence works closely with school leaders to identify strengths and areas of growth through a lens of equity, and developing improvement strategies that will best serve each school community. The Department of Equity and Excellence partners with school leadership teams and values student, parent and community contribution.
