BPS Virtual COVID-19 Equity Roundtables
The Boston Public Schools understands it is essential we maintain an unwavering commitment to equity during the district closure. As we set goals and formulate implementation plans, we must assure racial equity remains in the forefront, as well as equity for students with special needs, English learners, and for those who are economically disadvantaged and/or from other historically marginalized communities.
To support this effort, the Boston Public Schools has created virtual school-based, community, and regional equity roundtables.
Equity Roundtables aim to ensure we hold our conversation amongst a community of stakeholders to push one another's thinking to ensure we are doing everything we can as a school, district, and community to eliminate opportunity and achievement gaps for Boston Public Schools students. Data is essential to understanding where to best focus our efforts to meet the needs of students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders analyze student data during equity roundtables to ensure prioritization of our most vulnerable students.
