Integration and Educational Equity
Pursuant to MN Statute 124D.86, districts with racially isolated schools are required to develop and submit an integration plan to the Minnesota Department of Education that addresses educationally appropriate, voluntary ways to integrate schools. Cedar Park has been racially identified since 2004 and has since become a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) magnet school.
The 2014-17 Achievement and Integration Plan was approved by the School Board and has been submitted to the Minnesota Department of Education. The Acheivement and Integration Plan was developed by a 19-member Community Collaboration Council that consisted of parents, teachers and other district staff. A comprehensive evaluation of the plan which consisted of focus groups, analysis of student achievement data, financial records, and magnet school implementation contributed to the development of the plan. The Integration and Educational Equity Plan budget is approved on an annual basis by the Minnesota Department of Education.
