New EMID (March 2016)
Since the conveyance of Harambee and Crosswinds Schools, EMID has increased its focus on providing programs and support services focused around professional learning and student programming. Our offerings in both areas have increased, especially in the AVID programs. Interest in our services has also increased to districts, schools, and individuals outside of our member districts.
As part of the EMID Board’s strategic direction to grow the organization’s customer base, we have been involved in a re-branding process to create an image and message that is a better reflection of who we are now versus the name “East Metro Integration District.” Some of our members and other clients are not in the “east” metro. The term “district” is harder to explain now that we don’t operate schools.
Therefore, beginning immediately, East Metro Integration District will be “doing business as” (DBA) Equity Alliance MN.
Our new logo shows the swirling movement of interconnected but separate entities who are working in an alliance with other partners toward the goal of educational equity. Our new url is www.equityalliancemn.org.
Transiton for EMID
Our transition to the new name will occur over the next several weeks.
EMID will continue to be the name of the joint powers legal entity governed by the EMID Board.
