The Los Angeles Unified Board of Education passed the Accelerating Achievement through Equity in Action resolution, co-authored by board members Tanya Ortiz Franklin and Mónica García.
The resolution commits the district to achieving educational equity by recognizing that Los Angeles Unified students have been impacted by historical inequities. It would redistribute resources based on student need and close gaps in opportunities and outcomes.
The resolution adopts an equity impact statement to provide the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education and community an analysis of how well each board item moves toward achieving equity. It also commits the Los Angeles Unified School District to a more comprehensive analysis of investments toward equity.
“Every board meeting, we have an opportunity to correct historic inequities and take direct action to accelerate learning for all students and especially for our highest-need students,” Ortiz Franklin said. “Without a clearly defined vision of equity, we will continue to produce inequalities in our schools and communities. This resolution will ensure we have the common language and impact analysis to make informed decisions on how our actions will or will not achieve equity in Los Angeles Unified.”
“Equity in Action is essential at Los Angeles Unified on a daily basis,” García said. “Equitable investment and opportunities will empower students and schools on the path toward educational justice. We expect that a yearly public review of the state of equitable funding in our district will encourage thoughtful action and transparency.”
