What is the EDIA? Who is the EDIA Committee and what do they do?

The EDIA is a reflective tool and guided process to evaluate policies, practices, and procedures that impact MPS students and families.  

The EDIA Committee is a voluntary advisory group that consists of parents/guardians of MPS students, community-based organization members, and MPS staff. The purpose of the EDIA Committee is to partner with MPS to support the district in identifying and examining inequities in MPS policies, practices, and procedures that significantly impact student learning and resource allocation.
