Background: At its July 2020 meeting, the Board referred Resolution 2021R-010 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 continued to implement 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 are focusing on the following areas: Curriculum & Professional Development; Week in Action; and Monthly BLM Projects. All sub-groups meet regularly and include student representation to ensure student voice is heard.

The Administration has provided regular updates to the Board beginning in October 2020 on progress and next steps in carrying out the Board’s action relative to Black Lives Matter and the Black Lives Matter Week. The attached presentation is the final report for the 2020-2021 school year and includes next steps for the 2021-2022 school year.
