Each year the Northshore Schools Foundation receives dozens of requests for books that are more representative of our world. Our teachers and staff want books that reflect the students we serve and that address important issues of equity and social justice, and antiracism.
In February 2020, the Foundation's Board voted to provide all schools access to those resources by allocating up to $1000 for each school to purchase equity & diversity books or other items that are student-facing and in alignment with their racial equity plan.

You can help us provide continued funding for these purchases by supporting this campaign.
The funds raised in this campaign will be accessible by a grant process to the Racial Educational and Justice team lead from each school in the district and can be used to update classroom and school libraries.
