The Board of Education adopts resolutions throughout the year that recognizes a variety of cultures and calls for further education about the contributions of various populations. The Curriculum & Instruction team develops instructional materials to support those monthly resolutions. The materials are intended to provide resources and prompt discussions as part of the Social Justice Standards in elementary and secondary grade levels.
