Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee Application

The Board will appoint fifteen members to the Committee. The School Board Chair shall select three members and each of the other six School Board Members shall select two members to be appointed by the Board. Each Board Member will make reasonable efforts to ensure that at least one of his/her appointees resides in that Member’s residence area and at least one is a minority. The Superintendent shall assign no more than three appropriate District staff as liaisons. The mission of the committee shall be to monitor the District’s maintenance of a unitary school system and adherence to School Board Policies concerning equity and diversity. (A unitary school system has eliminated the effects of segregation. When a school district is deemed as unitary, the courts no longer supervise the district’s student assignment system.) The committee shall review and provide input concerning revisions to the student assignment plan and any proposal to acquire a school site, construct or abandon a school facility.
