Saint Paul Public Schools is currently engaged in multi-layered racial equity development work with Pacific Educational Group to create the educational climate and culture for systemic equity transformation.
This transformation includes all levels of the organization; School Board; Superintendent’s Cabinet; district and site leadership; licensed and non-licensed staff; and school sites. The district is committed to eliminating racial disparities and predictability in academic achievement.
All SPPS schools have established a site-based equity team, which is implementing racial equity development and training at each of the school sites. SPPS is also engaged in Culturally Responsive Pedagogy at school sites through district-wide professional development, site coaching, and a district-wide culturally responsive cohort. During the 2013-14 school year, school sites will partner with district departments in academic equity walks.
Current goals:1. Culturally Responsive Teaching
