African American Achievement Taskforce

African American Achievement Taskforce

Overview

There is urgent work necessary to support our African American students in reaching their full potential. As educators and leaders in our community, we are obligated to change outcomes for African American students on a variety of key district student outcome indicators, including grade level readiness, graduation, A-G completion, and college and career readiness measurements.  

Current outcomes are unacceptable and serve as the impetus for establishing an African American Achievement Taskforce. This critical task force will be comprised of members of our community who have demonstrated expertise, knowledge of developing solutions to complex issues, and clear commitment to increasing student outcomes and narrowing opportunity gaps.
