Action Plan to Combat Systemic Racism


At its June 23, 2020 School Board meeting, the Loudoun County School Board (LCSB) received an update on immediate actions that the LCSB and Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) Administration can take to combat systemic racism in LCPS. At the July 21, 2020 School Board meeting LCPS Administration began presenting a more detailed plan to be presented over multiple School Board meetings (during the months of July, August, and September) that continues to outline potential governance opportunities for the LCSB as well as operational steps that LCPS Administration could take, identification of actions that were in progress prior to the school closure, and categorized action steps by a minimum of one of four areas of focus: Academic Progress, Access & Opportunity, Relationships & Culture, and Closing Gaps. Additionally, each action step of the plan now includes goals, resources needed to accomplish each goal, and questions that are under consideration. This document is a fluid document as LCPS may add or revise action steps based on progress monitoring data, current events, and climate survey data. The ultimate goals of the detailed plan are to ensure transparency in progress monitoring and accountability in the process.
