The School Integration Task Force Records document the Task Force's research and findings concerning the San Diego Unified School District's integration plan. These
records contain correspondence, monitor applications and logs, school assignments, student testing results, enrollment statistics,
court orders and charges, task force reports, race/human relations materials, and surveys. The collection dates from 1974-1983,
and is divided into two series: General Files and Reports and Surveys.
In 1967, a group of parents filed a class action lawsuit against the San Diego Unified School District for alleged inequalities
of educational opportunities for students of all ethnic backgrounds. This lawsuit became known as Carlin v. San Diego Board of Education. In 1977, Judge Louis Welsh ruled that the school district must employ a voluntary integration plan to combat segregation.
As part of his ruling, Judge Welsh ordered the creation of the School Integration Task Force. The court charged the task force
with monitoring and evaluating the implementation and progress of the school district's integration plan. The ITF would then
make annual reports to the court at scheduled hearings.
