Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action: February 5-9
Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action

The Board read the two-page proclamation at the January 25, 2024 board meeting.

The school board proclamation states in part that “our students have the right to be educated within a village committed to nurturing their courage and skills to confront personal, systemic and societal bias, while recognizing the many types of privilege that exist within our society.”

The proclamation goes on to state that “students have the right to engage in reflection and honest conversations in school communities on issues of social justice, equity, the intersectionality of oppression and the legacy of institutionalized racism and oppression that has plagued the United States since its founding.”

The Black Lives Matter at School campaign first began in Seattle in 2016 and has since spread across the nation.
