The CLEaR Justice Initiative grew from a partnership between MPS Superintendent William Andrekopoulos and a cooperative group of MPS teachers and community members. The project has gone through several stages and has included many components, including critical analysis of instructional materials; federal stimulus-funded, school-based professional development on diversity and multiculturalism; a listserv; district-wide trainings; and regular meetings and trainings for teacher and trainer cohorts.
Another important element of the initiative is the CLEaR Justice Advisory council, which is made up of a diverse group of MPS and community stakeholders. For more information on the council or other elements of the CLEaR Justice Initiative, contact us.
