Conference Room A
Board of Education
Please try to attend the Equity Plan Workshop next Monday evening.
The Human Relations Commission has extended the review of "practices" that are discriminatory for African American Students for two (2) more yeas. years. ( The Advocates for African American Students in Pittsburgh Public Schools filed a “complaint”against the district many, many years ago. for multiple discriminatory practices.
Last year the EQUITY presentation, which is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, included the following:
1. Human Relations Commission Report
2. PSSA Results for all schools.
3. Achievement Gap disparities
4. Graphs demonstrating a comparative analysis of academic achievement results for Black and White students in PPS schools.
The EQUITY PLAN proposal will tell those interested how the PPS District plans to improve achievement for African American students in PPS.
Be there! Look for details. specifics, and changes in past practice! Ask questions of your Board members.
