African American Achievement Plan

African American Achievement Plan

The goal of the School District's African American Achievement Plan shall be to eliminate the achievement gap as compared to White students. Given this, the Plan identifies barriers to the academic achievement of African American students; lists the strategies, procedures, and/or programs that will be implemented to improve the academic achievement of African American students and address the identified barriers; and sets measurable goals for the improvement of African American academic achievement.  The School District’s African American Achievement Plan also addresses discipline disparities observed among of African American students and the assignment of African American students to special programs, such as the Exceptional Student Education (ESE) and Alternative Education programs, including whether such assignments exceed state and District averages for other groups. Other purposes of this Plan include the hiring of a diverse workforce, the inclusion of culturally responsive lessons and materials, the celebration of diverse learners and families, and the fostering of a growth mindset.
