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 (tapped by board Chair Tyler Murphy), Dr. Rania Belmadani (by Vice Chair Amy Green), Jeanette Hart (board member Marilyn Clark), Monica Mundy (board member Amanda Ferguson), and Judy Myers (board member Jason Moore) 

Elected members, serving through December 2025: Camisha Boyd-Powell (chair), Shiretha Chantal, Anthony Danny Everett, Bret Nathaniel, and Kevin Thomas
