MAEC’s Equity Audit

Reading Time: < 1 minute

MAEC, Inc. developed its Equity Audit to offer districts, schools, and teachers a way to develop a more concrete understanding of what it means to practice equity, and reflect on whether current school policies, procedures and practices are equitable. Unlike a regular organizational audit, MAEC’s Equity Audit critically examines policies, programs, and practices that directly or indirectly impact students or staff relative to their race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, color, disability, age, sexual orientation, sexual identity, religion, or other socio-culturally significant factors. These tools are meant to provide a birds-eye view of various aspects of equity and highlight many systemic barriers to equity that might exist.
