Inclusivity Advisory Committee Members

  • After an open application and thorough interview process, 24 Inclusivity Advisory Committee members were selected by the District Planning Team. The committee includes a diverse cross section of volunteers who were chosen based on their experience with diversity and inclusion topics such as culture, disabilities, ethnicity, gender and sexual identity and equity, mental health, race, religion, interfaith and others.

    The purpose of the Inclusivity Advisory Committee is to provide guidance to the Superintendent of Schools regarding systems, structures, policies, regulations and experiences related to inclusivity and to help ensure that PCSD is a place where students, families and staff feel a sense of acceptance, connectedness, and validation. The newly formed advisory committee will initially analyze multiple types of various stakeholder data to better understand and identify the District’s strengths and areas in need of improvement.
