Resolution 1819R-016.pdf
At its meeting on January 24, 2019, the Board referred Resolution 1819R-016 regarding commemorative observances to the Committee on Student Achievement and School Innovation (SASI).

At its February 28, 2019 meeting, the Board adopted Resolution 1819R-016 and directed the Administration to develop a plan to celebrate the rich diversity in our district.

Since the Board's action, the Administration has been working to develop the plan and had the opportunity to share it with the resolution's author and it was determined to be in alignment with the resolution and the Board's action.

The plan includes a number of avenues to communicate with school communities the dates and resources available in order to celebrate the diverse ethnicities and race within our district. These include sharing via mConnect, Thursday Updates, parent coordinators, and the social studies listservs. In addition, the Office of School Administration will develop a yearly compilation of what schools have planned and have carried out relative to celebrating the district's rich diversity. This plan will allow the district to amplify and elevate information that already exists in order to further build upon resources.

The Administration will continue and expand current efforts in alignment with the Board's action commencing with the 2019-20 school year.
