The FAIR School is a partner school with the Office of Black Student Achievement where our young African-American men are able to be a part of the B.L.A.C.K. (Building Lives and Acquiring Cultural Knowledge) class. The Office of Black Male Student Achievement was created to specifically address the needs of the largest demographic group within MPS. It represents an equitable approach to tackling the challenges that exist for the school district's black male students. The office seeks to engage students, families, teachers and community members in authentic and innovative ways, including:
- Professional development
- Authentic engagement with families and communities
- Direct service with our Kings
- Transition of recent graduates to interns
To learn more about our Kings at The FAIR School, please contact Isaya Kibira at Isaya.Kibira@mpls.k12.mn.us.
