Statement from Lansing USD 469 regarding Critical Race Theory
CRITICAL RACE THEORY STATEMENT
My office has received several phone calls and questions regarding our stance on Critical Race Theory (CRT), and we would like to share some information regarding the curriculum being taught in the Lansing School District.
Lansing USD 469 teaches state and district standards for all subjects; Critical Race Theory is not part of either set of standards. Critical Race Theory is a theoretical approach to material generally discussed at the college level, not at the K-12 level. As a district, we remain steadfast in our commitment to equity, inclusion, and continuous improvement so that all students feel valued and are prepared for their future. We serve more than 2,500 students with diverse thoughts, beliefs, perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. Our job is to prepare all of them to achieve personal success.
