Minneapolis Schools Revise Equity & Diversity Policy

On Tuesday, October 8th, the Minneapolis School District published a revision to its Equity and Diversity Policy (Policy 1304) in an effort to address the achievement gap.  One key revision was the development of an Equity and Diversity Impact Assessment which measures policies that have a direct impact on student education and provides insight as to how these policies affect student learning.  The policy also calls for an increased number of partnership with outside organizations (e.g. non-profits, businesses, government agencies) in order to meet established equity goals.
