Model “Safe Haven” School Board Resolution

With the help of our friends at Being Black At School, and Colin McGinnis in particular, we’ve pulled together the strongest language to protect students we could find in many resolutions passed thus far. It’s meant to be comprehensive, so tailor it to fit what your community has already done or plans to do.

Steps to take:

1. Have the school board agendize and vote on it.

2. Bring supporters to speak at public comment at your next school board meeting.

3. Schedule follow-up meetings to discuss how community, parents, teachers/staff, and students can all work together on implementation checklists.
