Survey Process Information
Equity Alliance MN believes all students deserve to thrive in their educational communities. For over 25 years, Equity Alliance MN has worked to remove barriers and to increase opportunities for all students in educational systems.
Equity Alliance MN believes in the brilliance of every child. We believe every student has the right to feel safe and included in our schools. We will continue to work to ensure every child has the opportunity to reach their greatest potential.
We are aware that there is information being discussed on how an equity audit survey was administered. Throughout all stages of an equity audit, Equity Alliance MN values dialogue between school leadership, teachers, staff, families and students amongst and between one another. At no time does Equity Alliance MN, nor the districts we partner with, tell students not to talk with or discuss the survey with their parents. It is also standard practice that school districts inform families of any surveys that may take place. The survey encompasses several grade levels and allows students to skip or not respond to any of the questions.
We want our communities to be a place where every child can grow up to pursue their dreams and reach their fullest potential no matter their background. Challenging the status quo has never been easy. We are proud of the collaborative efforts we have made with school districts to ensure a high quality education for every student, and we recognize there is still much work to be done. We will proudly continue to work in partnership with districts and organizations to support educational equity for all students.
