Behaving EQUITABLY with a focus on DIVERSITY and INCLUSION is the PROCESS to working towards EQUALITY!
The town of Milton is a diverse community with a public-school system that is among the top performers in the Commonwealth. Although many learners go on to be successful in college and career, this experience is not shared by ALL. To better provide ALL learners with the same high-quality opportunities, we needed to assess whether our systems, policies, pedagogies, practices, and behaviors are aligned to living our mission. Is our "how" aligned with our "why?" Is our "how" helping us reach our "what"? MPS is committed to creating a school district where the opportunites for all stakeholders are more equitable and attainable as we grow and move foreward.
In the effort to fully undestand the district's strength, challenges, and areas for growth around DEI, the district undergone a comprehensive Quality Review through an Equity Lens (QREL). The review was facilitated by Cambridge Education, an independent consulting company.
While this Systems QREL provides a current picture of MPS's equitable practices, it is important to realize that equity is an on going JOURNEY for an indetermnate time that will require active, civil, empathetic and responsive engagement from all Leaners (parents, guardians, community members, partners, staff, and students).
