Main Points

​Proposed Amendments to Policy IFC, "Multiculturalism," are before the Board for First Reading.  The proposed amendments update the Board's vision statement in the introduction and align the policy with other Board policies by expanding the groups listed in the first paragraph.  In addition, in the last paragraph, the amendments add that CMS will "intentionally incorporate" (as well as acknowledge) diversity throught the curriculum, instruction and professional development.  Finally, the cross references are amended to add two of the Board's equity policies, ADA and IJ, and the bullying prevention policy and regulation, JICK and JICK-R.
