Equity Alliance MN

Equity Alliance MN is a collaborative of nine area school districts that have united to address the educational issues resulting from dramatic demographic changes and inequities. Through Equity Alliance MN, nine suburban districts partner to provide culturally responsive learning opportunities that enable all students to participate fully in the social, economic, and democratic lives of their communities.

Partnership Opportunities

Partnerships are collaborations which bring together academic and cross-district integrated classrooms. Partnerships between Equity Alliance MN member districts are paid for with integration revenue.

Equity Alliance MN supports voluntary integration among public schools in the East Metro Twin Cities area. Equity Alliance MN is funded by state allocations to satisfy the Minnesota Desegregation Rule.

The goal of the partnerships is for students to:

  • learn together (academic focus),
  • learn about each other (integration focus), and
  • learn about cultures(cultural focus).
