The Minneapolis Board of Education on Oct. 8 approved a new equity and diversity policy for Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS).
The policy is the culmination of a nearly year-long process that included input from a variety of stakeholders including the Board Equity and Achievement Committee and the Education Equity Organizing Collaborative, which is comprised of a group of multiracial, multicultural organization partners working to further educational equity. Part of the process included developing an Equity and Diversity Impact Assessment that provides information on how some MPS students and communities are disproportionately affected by bias in policies, procedures and protocols.
