The Baker-Polito Administration’s Task Force on Hate Crimes released a School Resource Guide outlining best practices to assist schools in developing a comprehensive hate crime policy. The Guide is intended to support school districts across the Commonwealth by providing model policies that foster safe and inclusive learning environments for all students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators. The Administration also announced the availability of $400,000 in grant funding for local school districts to support the development and implementation of anti-hate crimes programming.

“Our administration was proud to revitalize the Hate Crimes Task Force, which has played an important role in ensuring that Massachusetts remains vigilant against any form of hate or discrimination,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “This school resource guide is a valuable addition to the previous work of the Task Force, and we are grateful to the Task Force members and the research team for their efforts. We look forward to working with them and our local school districts to further promote safe and welcoming learning environments for the Commonwealth’s students.”
