Background: In August of 2017, the Milwaukee School Board of Directors adopted Resolution 1617R-006 to develop an equity policy. Administrative Policy & Procedure 1.06, Equity in MPS, were adopted by the Board on August 31, 2017. The attached PowerPoint highlights the 2018-19 progress related to this policy and procedure.

Throughout the 2018-19 school year, several opportunities have been offered to MPS staff and partners to build equity and culturally responsiveness capacity. Several MPS offices and departments have engaged in professional development on issues of equity and culturally responsiveness. The district continues to provide opportunity for community dialogues to generate collective ways to address community disparities.
Fiscal Impact Statement: None.

Also, the guidebook to accompany Administrative Policy & Procedure 1.06 will be finalized and district-wide trainings will be facilitated with all stakeholders.
