Deer River Equity Project

In the fall of 2013, Deer River Public Schools joined three other school districts in Minnesota (Robbinsdale, St. Paul, and Osseo), the Organizing Apprenticeship Project (OAP)Education Equity Organizing Collaborative (EEOC), and the Minnesota Department of Education as part of a pilot to improve equity in schools. The Equity Rubric Pilot Project is a pilot to test a process, approach, and a set of tools developed to achieve increased equity leadership, policy and practice in schools and to influence how education excellence is defined and supported at the state level.
