The resolution, proposed by Ward 8 member and Vice President of the State Board of Education, Markus Batchelor, received unanimous consent.

The resolution recognizes that this work is ongoing, with this concluding statement:
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that the State Board invites educators across grade levels and content areas to use inclusive resources to enrich instruction throughout the whole year, not just one week or month.
