Because language justice plays such a huge role in student outcomes and parent engagement, we spoke at the IPS board meeting in June.
We thanked the board for listening to us and passing a language justice policy back in December because we know everyone needs to be at the table for academic growth and equity.
We requested IPS leaders share a public update on the state of language justice in the very near future and ensure all families, no matter their language, are welcome to that update. We also asked them to invest time in gathering input from families that have long felt silenced because we believe it will help this district continually improve a great policy.
