02-26-2013 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #14


Title
Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP)

Discussion

This resolution expresses the Board's continued commitment to district-wide voluntary desegregation  through programs that support diversity and maximize achievement for all students.  A copy of this resolution will be included in the district's "Magnet Schools Assistance Program Grant" (MSAP) application.

Originally, staff thought that the resolution could be adopted by the Board subsequent to approval of the grant and receipt of the grant funding.  However, staff has received guidance from the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) suggesting that the Board adopt the resolution prior to the submission of the MSAP grant to ensure compliance of regulatory components.



Recommendation
Recognize and proclaim the Board's commitment to district-wide voluntary desegregation.
