About Us

The Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN) is a national coalition of multiracial, suburban-urban school districts that have come together to understand and eliminate achievement/opportunity gaps that persist in their schools. Across MSAN districts racial disparities on an array of achievement data demonstrate wide gaps in performance between students of color and their white peers. MSAN districts have student populations between 3,000 and 33,000, and are most often well-established first-ring suburbs or small to mid-size cities. Additionally, the districts share a history of high academic achievement and connections to major research universities.

Since 1999, MSAN districts have worked fervently to conduct and publish research, analyze policies, and examine practices that support the Network's mission: to understand and change school practices and structures that keep racial achievement gaps in place.
