From Committee Chair Michele Tuck-Ponder: The Princeton Board of Education Equity Committee will meet on March 9, 2020 at 7pm in the Valley Road Conference Room (25 Valley Road, Princeton).  

On the agenda for Monday:
  1. Panorama Education (PE) will make a presentation on an equity-inclusion survey for PPS.  This survey is designed to provide data on the equity climate in our schools, and also has a feature to collect the student voice as well.   The surveys are actually free, but what PE can do is collate and then disaggregate all the data so you can look at it in multiple ways.  When we think about an Equity Dashboard, this might be a big part of it.
  2. Continuation of the conversation on instituting an Equity Impact Assessment for policies and official actions.  Equity committee member Lynda Dodd has provided a couple of articles on the topic (see below) to inform the conversation and I hope that you will take the time to review the articles in advance of our meeting.

Racial Equity Impact Assessment

This is the 2014 assessment form used in the public schools in Minneapolis – It’s perhaps too long, but does provide an example of a preestablished format used for these assessments.
