PURPOSE Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) is committed to identifying and correcting policies, practices, programs and procedures that perpetuate the achievement gap and institutional racism in all its forms. In order to apply corrective measures, MPS leaders are required to apply the Equity & Diversity Impact Assessment to all future policies, practices, programs and procedures that have a significant impact on student learning and resource allocation. The impact assessment provides decision makers with guidance on how various MPS communities are impacted by the policy, practice, program or procedure and offers alternative solutions so that no community is disproportionately impacted.
