Educational Equity Framework

The Thompson School District (TSD) Board of Education had been reviewing student outcome data that showed ongoing disparities in reading, math, graduation, and behavior. They felt a sense of urgency to address these identified concerns.

In September 2019, Dr. Schaffer asked the Director of Language, Culture, and Equity to create an Educational Equity Policy for the district.

The Director and colleagues worked closely with the TSD Community and the Board of Education to build a common language and understanding of equity, and to uncover their desires and commitments as stakeholder to address equity across the TSD system.

The Educational Equity Policy was developed from the stakeholder input. The policy included guidance for a framework.
