A lawsuit was recently filed by some past and present students of Eastern Carver County Schools who believe the challenges they experienced within our schools are the result of systemic race discrimination. The District takes these concerns seriously. While Eastern Carver County School District denies the allegations of wrongdoing and will defend itself accordingly in federal court, it plans to also continue its strident efforts to address diversity, inclusion and equity issues.
Eastern Carver County Schools is committed to providing a school environment where every student feels safe, welcome, and included, and has the tools and resources to succeed. That work is ongoing, and to ensure it continues with as little disruption as possible, the district will not be discussing the litigation and the claims of the families outside the federal proceedings.
