Response Notes

Responsive to this request, there is no specific budget category for equity programs that address economic, racial and ethnic achievement gaps outside the budget for the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. While that office provides some programming and support to individual schools, the funding is not broken down or tracked by school. There are also potentially related expenditures, such as grants received under Title I which serves schools with a concentrated poverty (see response to MPIA 2019-129).

*Some request language is summarized to include the requester's specific document requests and legally protected information (such as personally identifiable information of a student) or personal, defamatory and malicious content removed at the discretion of the school system.
