Background: At its July 2020 meeting, the Board referred Resolution 2021R-010 to the Committee on Student Achievement and School Innovation. At its August 2020, meeting, the Board took action to adopt Resolution 2021R-010.

Since the Board's action, the Administration implemented the resolution for the 2020-21 school year. This included assembling the 2020-21 Black Lives Matter (BLM) Week of Action and a Year of Purpose Advisory Committee and creating sub-groups. The Administration is continuing this important work for the 2023-24 school year, and planning is underway.

For the 2023-24 school year, the committee and sub-groups were updated and have been meeting regularly. The Administration will continue to provide quarterly reports to the Board on its planning for the current school year relative to three key areas:
