SLAM!

MVHS is proud to participate with Dr. Lori Watson in SLAM! (Student Leaders’ Antiracist Movement!)
 
SLAM! is designed to not just engage students in conversations about race, but to empower and mobilize them as catalysts for change through an anti-racist leadership youth movement. SLAM! participants deepen their personal racial understanding and elevate their racial consciousness as they develop the skills and tools to disrupt systemic racism within their schools, communities, and the larger society.
 
For more information, please visit Dr. Lori Watson's website.
 
 
 

SRVUSD VISION FOR EQUITY

SRVUSD Equity Strategic Direction
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is committed to nurturing and educating the whole student. Our equity leaders strive to interrupt any inequitable practices in school culture and curriculum and eliminate barriers to personal  and academic success. Further, we establish each place of learning as an institution that validates and celebrates each student as an individual and as a part of a larger human family.
