Equity & Outreach
Tina Gutierez-Schmich, Equity Director
Although diversity certainly existed within the one room schoolhouses that made up Bethel School District in 1948, the diversity of the 21st Century is much more varied, visible, and has a major impact on education.
When the Oregon Department of Education developed standards for students, they included the expectation that all students from Oregon schools have the abilities to succeed in a diverse workforce.
Bethel School District is committed to reaching that goal. The District created the Oversight Committee and the position of Multicultural/Equity Coordinator to help ensure we are meeting the needs of all students.
