Ethnic Studies Work Team

The Ethnic Studies Work Team is responsible for recommending to the Superintendent a plan for the implementation of a P-12 Ethnic Studies Framework for use across grade levels and content areas and a high school elective or required course. The framework and the high school course will promote the self-identity, humanization and empowerment of all students, healing from historical, intergenerational and lasting trauma, civic action and community engagement. Ethnic Studies pedagogy will also promote collaboration, deep thinking and critical analysis of racism and other forms of oppression.
