    South St. Paul Public Schools received a major grant from the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation to bring Innocent Classroom training to our staff. In the next 2 years Innocent Classroom will help us:

    • Transform classrooms and relationships by deepening relationships with staff and students, particularly our students of color
    • Increase equity throughout the district
    • Undermine the impact of societal negative stereotypes, low expectations, and bias
    • Provide an environment where all students are free to achieve

    Next Steps:

    • Ongoing leadership training, planning and coaching
    • Training for the licensed staff at the Secondary Building 2019-20
    • Training for the licensed staff at both Kaposia and Lincoln Center 2020-21
    • Creating and implementing systems of support for individual schools
    • Introduce concepts at district staff launch
