Background: At its July 2020 meeting, the Board referred Resolution 2021R-010 by Director Miller to the Committee on Student Achievement and School Innovation. At its August 27, 2020 meeting, the Board took action to adopt Resolution 2021R-010 as attached.

Since the Board's action, the Administration has started implementing the resolution. The Office of School Administration assembled the 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) Week of Action and a Year of Purpose Advisory Committee in alignment with the resolution. The resolution items were identified, addressed with the BLM committee, and sub-groups were created that will focus on the following areas: Curriculum & Professional Development; Week in Action; Monthly BLM Projects. All sub-groups include student representation to ensure student voice heard.

The committee met as a collective twice, as well as, met with sub-groups once to identify next steps for implementation. The next meeting will be held in October that will identify the first phase of implementation for all schools. The Administration will report its progress relative to implementing Resolution 2021R-010 monthly.
