The School Board is planning on discussing a proposal to establish a Diversity Ad Hoc Committee at its meeting on Tuesday, September 28, 2010.
The steering committee of Diversity Now strongly supports this step. School districts that have successfully addressed diversity issues have largely done so, based on a school board-approved strategic diversity plan.
Such plans address diversity recruitment, retention, and school climate issues. It is an excellent tool for planning, for educating the public, and measuring progress.
Ideally, the School Board would include community members on this committee
Diversity Now is asking those of you who support the establishment of this committee to either:
a) come to this meeting to show your support for this proposal, or
b) send a brief email message to School Board commissioners telling them you support this proposal and urge them to vote yes. Please send emails by September 28.
The emails of school board commissioners are:
firstname.lastname@example.org, Kpillsbury@bsdvt.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
The meeting is at 5:00 p.m., at the Ira Allen Administration Building 150 Colchester Avenue.
