On June 26, 2020, the Alexandria City School Board approved a five-year strategic plan that they call “a bold and courageous roadmap that is timely and will position ACPS as a national leader in redefining PreK-12 education as a deliberately inclusive and supportive experience where all succeed.”
The school system’s website features a vertical called “Ensuring Equity,” which has a page on “Teaching Racial Justice,” promoting links to curriculum and articles from outlets including the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Teaching Tolerance” program, the 1619 Project, How Schools Are ‘Spirit Murdering’ Black and Brown Students, Explaining Privilege to a Broke White Person, Teaching While White, and the 1619 Project.
