Equity Action Team

Our Mission

We stand in solidarity with our students by empowering them as individuals and learners, while also demonstrating our belief that racism, hatred, or discrimination of any kind have no place at Avon Grove Charter School.

What is Equity?

In Pennsylvania, equity has been defined as, "every student having access to the educational resources and rigor they need at the right moment in their education across race, gender, ethnicity, language, disability, sexual orientation, family background and/or family income.” 

- Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE)
