SDIRC and NAACP Sign Joint Plan
The School Board of Indian River County, Florida and the Indian River County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (Indian River NAACP) will work collaboratively and cooperatively towards their shared goal of achieving a fully-integrated school system.
In order to attain this goal, the School Board will create an Equity Committee that reports directly to the School Board and shall be responsible for monitoring and documenting compliance with the [August 2018] Desegregation Order and for making recommendations to the Board.
Based on its record of compliance with prior orders and the data and information exchanged, the School District of Indian River County has already achieved unitary status in the area of facilities, non-instructional staff, and administrative staff, and the purpose of the Equity Committee is to maintain a high level of accountability to the School Board and citizenry in ensuring compliance with the remaining requirements of the [August 2018] Order and facilitating the achievement of full unitary status.
While the parties agree that the School District is entitled to a declaration of partial unitary status already in the area of facilities, non-instructional staff, and administrative staff, other areas remain to achieve full unitary status. Therefore, the Equity Committee will monitor the School District’s progress in these remaining areas for a period of three school years, which time period will begin at the Equity Committee’s first meeting. If, at the end of the three years, the School District has complied with the remaining requirements of this agreement, the parties agree that the School District will be entitled to a declaration of unitary status in all areas.
