Equity

We believe that the South St. Paul Public Schools should provide an environment where open communication and the celebration of differences are accepted and appreciated. 

Every three years, we create an "Achievement and Integration Plan" that responds to the needs of our students, staff, families, and our community in general. The plan is incorporated into our World’s Best Workforce planning, and is reviewed, evaluated and updated annually as required by the state of Minnesota.

The purpose of the Achievement and Integration for Minnesota program is to pursue racial and economic integration, increase student achievement, create equitable educational opportunities, and reduce academic disparities based on students' diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds in Minnesota public schools. Read Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.861Read Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.862.

In South St. Paul, our Achievement and Integration Plan helps to drive and guide our work in reducing achievement and opportunity gaps for our students while  increasing achievement for all.
