Welcoming Schools - School Board Chair, Lydia Lee

Ms. Young,

To update you what is happening with Welcoming Schools, it has been sent to our Curriculum and Instruction Department and is undergoing a formal review process to determine which parts, if any, can be successfully used for the 2008-09 school year. It has not been delivered in any classroom.

The District's mission is to do everything it can to prevent bullying and hazing in our schools. A number of anti-bullying curriculums have been approved and have been in place for several years. Bullying continues to be a growing concern in our schools and in society, and we are committed to providing instructional materials and training to District staff to create a more tolerant school environment.

Thank you for taking the time to express your support for the Welcoming School curriculum.

Lydia Lee
Chair, Minneapolis Board of Education
