Summary: Dr. Rosa Atkins and Charlottesville City School Board Members attended a 2018 Virginia School Boards Association Annual Convention session where they heard from Fairfax County Public Schools about their model for equity and school improvement. During this session they explored the results from the initiative in its first three years. The project was based on tight focus, strategic and equitable deployment of resources, and removal of barriers to student achievement, all in a differentiated framework. By explaining the history of the project and its current state, attendees learned how they can help improve equity across their divisions and improve results at the struggling schools in their districts.

The original step this of the work was to develop and equity policy. The Charlottesville City School Board will review the attached One Fairfax Equity policy as they discuss developing a policy for Charlottesville City Schools.
