osseo public schools creating equity



The Osseo School district is one of the most racially diverse districts in the state. It is also a district where the equity gap between white students and students of color persists when it comes to academic achievement and school suspensions.
Osseo has a key opportunity to close these gaps and lead the state in terms of educating a diverse student body. But we need our leaders to make it happen!

Join Us!

We will share what we need from our school board and learn about our candidates as we ask them to share their vision for creating equity and fostering an environment where all children can thrive and reach their full potential
