On May 27, 2020 after the George Floyd riots started in Minneapolis, Brooklyn Center ISD286 Superintendent Carly Baker, of a neighboring school district, sent a video to staff.
"There are protests and riots, unrest, that is fueled by a rage that we can understand. It is justified.
Our students and families are struggling. Some of them are inconsolable... Some of you feel like you're at your breaking point. I'm so sorry. I see you... Even as the city shakes and our needs are mounting, I ask that you please take time to take care of you."
