Anchorage seeks comment on proposed student equity policies

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Anchorage School District has sought public comment regarding proposed policies focused on ensuring equality for students of color and low-income students. Alaska Public Media reported Thursday that school board President Elisa Vakalis says the board plans to host town hall meetings on March 25 and March 30 to hear the community’s perspectives about the potential policies. The first new measure would clarify the district’s position on racism. The second proposed policy would request the superintendent submit an annual report measuring student outcomes across demographic groups and also on the equity of resources allocated to schools and students.
