The Fairfax County Public School Board directed superintendent Michelle Reid to develop a “bias-related incident accountability infrastructure” by December 2022, during a July 14, 2022 school board meeting. Board member Abrar Omeish, who recently caught flack for making anti-Semitic comments on two social media posts, proposed the motion. The school board will approve the superintendent’s bias reporting plan prior to implementation.
Discussion of the motion begins at 1:06:00.
