  • What Is the Graduate Portrait?

    The Graduate Portrait is a clear and ambitious description of what the community wants its students to know, be, and be able to do, in order to prepare them to thrive in their lives and careers. Our graduate portrait includes attributes needed to prepare students to understand, confront, and change a global social environment that includes racial injustice and systems that perpetuate oppression.

    The Graduate Portrait inspires and emboldens educators and district staff to adopt innovations that are stimulated by signals about the future and to achieve results by meeting the needs of every student. 

    It enables leaders to align leadership, management, teaching and learning, and resources so that the learning system produces results that deliver on the promise of the Vision. The following nine Graduate Portrait elements are based on community inputs.
