Summary:

BE IT RESOLVED that the directors of SDHT, unequivocally stand
firm in our collective responsibility to foster an equitable, inclusive and antiracist school climate for
every student, staff member, parent, and community member. We commit to use our role as school
board directors to recognize, respond, and speak out against racial injustice and inequity in our
school community. In support of this goal, the SDHT board of directors commits to the following
action steps:

Develop a Concrete Action Plan Aligned to Support the Strategic Goal on Diversity and
Inclusion. SDHT is committed to establishing a culturally diverse and inclusive educational
experience that develops socio-cultural proficiency. The strategic goal will have 4 focus areas:
curriculum, diversity of staff, professional development, and analyzing data through antiracist and
equity lenses.

Develop SDHT District-Wide Antiracism and Equity Leadership Teams. SDHT Antiracism
and Equity Leadership Teams will be responsible for developing ideas and strategies to submit to
SDHT administration and board of directors around antiracism and equity. The Antiracism and
Equity Leadership Teams would place focus on examining student data and opportunity indicators
(e.g., achievement, attendance, discipline) and valuing diversity and practicing cultural awareness in
all school settings.

Develop a SDHT District-Wide Parent and Guardian Antiracism and Equity Team. This
Antiracism and Equity Team will be comprised of volunteer parents/guardians of children in our
schools who share a commitment to creating an equitable, inclusive and antiracist educational
environment for all students and families and developing an antiracist school climate. This
Antiracism and Equity Team will allow parents/guardians to provide feedback and ideas on ways to
build upon current SDHT strengths while providing feedback and input for areas of improvement.

Engage in Board Training on Cultivating an Antiracist School Climate. Board training will
enhance the directors’ awareness of issues of racism within our schools and ability to analyze SDHT
policies and practices through antiracist and equity lenses. With training, the directors will acquire
tools necessary to ensure antiracism and equity are at the forefront of SDHT policies and practices.

Adopted this 6th day of August, 2020.
