A new draft policy (anti-racism and equity) passed the first reading on Tuesday, January 26th, 2020. Like with our landmark sexual orientation and gender identity work, these kinds of policies can not only positively impact our schools but can transform the future of our whole city. Please share your feedback with me at [email protected]
The new policy was informed by working with an advisory committee and a review of other public school and post-secondary anti-racism and equity policies. The Policy Review Committee will be embarking upon additional engagement with stakeholders to help inform final work on the policy prior to bringing it to the Board of Trustees for second, third, and final reading. In the Policy Review Committee’s work plan, the intended timeline to have this policy work completed is the 2020-2021 school year.
