Equity Council Committee

  • The Equity Council Committee monitors and analyzes equity issues, advises the school board, and advocates for achievement by all students. We are champions for all children regardless of their background and circumstances, and we represent the equity conscience of the community. Five committee members are appointed by the school board and six are elected by the seated committee.

    Current members: Ariel ArthurJoseph Barry, Camisha Boyd-Powell (chair), Raaziq El-Amin, Arnold Farr, Antomia FarrellBob McLaughlin, Deverin MuffBret Nathaniel, Thalethia Routt, and Kennedy Wells
