On April 25, 2017, the Board of Education tentatively approved changes to Board  Policy ACA,  Human Relations, and recommended changing the name of Policy ACA, to Nondiscrimination, Equity, and Cultural Proficiency .  The revised policy includes the purposes and expectations of current Board Policies ACA, Human Relations , ACB, Nondiscrimination , ACE, Gender Equity , GBA, Workforce Diversity , and GMA, Human Relations Training of MCPS Staff

The renamed policy affirms the Board's desire to create an educational community guided by its five core values-Learning, Respect, Relationships, Equity and Excellence-that is deeply committed to ensuring that all students are supported to succeed and all staff are empowered to do their best work.  It asserts the Board's belief that each and every student matters, and in particular, that educational outcomes should never be predictable by any individual's actual or perceived personal characteristics.  It further asserts that equity demands intensive focus and attention to eliminate all gaps in student achievement.  Policy ACA establishes and promotes a framework that prepares all students to live and work in a globally-minded society and fosters a positive learning environment that embraces all unique and individual differences.  It affirms the Board's unwavering commitment that all students and staff demonstrate mutual respect without regard to any individual's actual or perceived personal characteristics.  

The draft of tentatively approved Policy ACA is available for public comment until Friday, May 26, 2017.
