Share with others:
The board of Pittsburgh Public Schools Wednesday night approved accept a memo of understanding with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission that gives the district two more years to reduce racial inequality for students, including academic achievement, discipline and resources.
The memo still requires a final approval from the Human Relations Commission.
The board also was scheduled to endorse an equity plan -- called "Equity: Getting to All" -- but Superintendent Linda Lane removed it from the agenda so some additional changes could be made.
