Equity Council Committee

The Equity Council Committee (ECC) 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.

Appointed members, through December 2024: Raaziq El-Amin (by board chair Tyler Murphy), Arnold Farr (vice chair Amy Green), Jeanette Hart (Marilyn Clark), Bob McLaughlin (Tom Jones), and Monica Mundy (Amanda Ferguson)

Elected members, serving through December 2023: Ariel Arthur, Camisha Boyd-Powell (chair), Anthony Danny Everett, Deverin Muff, Bret Nathaniel, and Kevin Thomas
