11-2-18 Anti-Racism Policy v 4.pdf
Summary: The Office of Community Engagement has designated a group of students from three high schools to assist in drafting an anti-racism policy. Most of these students attended the division’s 2018 summer leadership academy, where they were trained in cultural competency.
The group has come together for a series of half-day workshops since August to define problems, review division data, discuss and analyze research, and consult with division leaders, parent council, policy experts, and other ACPS staff.

The students will present their updated draft for feedback in preparation to submit the policy as information in December. Board members are asked to review the policy, prepare specific questions and or comments of affirmation to guide the students toward finalizing their end product.
