John Borkowski and Aleks Rushing will present, "Using Policy to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion," at the National School Boards Association (NSBA) 2022 Annual Conference and Exposition on April 2-4, 2022, in San Diego, CA.

Federal civil rights laws highlight areas in which policies can support efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Title VI, Title IX, the ADA, Section 504 and IDEA all have components that are designed to address equity issues and encourage school districts to address achievement and opportunity gaps based on protected classes as well as disability. This session will explore how board policy can promote these goals across several areas, including issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial unrest throughout our country.
