Mankato Area Public Schools is developing and implementing an equity vision and framework to ensure learning excellence and readiness for each student in the school system.  Equity work has been a central focus for several years, and in the 2020-2021 school year, the school district dedicated itself to making its work visible, rooted in data, and connected to the diverse communities it is privileged to serve.  
To support this effort, the Mankato Area School Board is seeking proposals from organizations to provide an equity workshop/training in May and/or June 2021. 
Interested organizations are asked to submit answers to the following questions by 5pm on Friday, May 14, 2021.
