Below are resources to support boards who are interested in establishing an equity policy and/or reviewing their existing policies/practices through an equity lens.
Some boards are adding an equity policy to their policy manuals to demonstrate their commitment to equity and define ways in which their districts will embed equity. Before a district moves to establish an equity policy, they should first work to utilizes an equity lens as they evaluate their current policy and practices. This, along with the use of the Leading for Equity Framework, will help the district determine the type of policy they want to establish in their community.
