Inclusivity Advisory Committee Members Selected

After an open application period and thorough screening and interview process, 25 Inclusivity Advisory Committee members have been selected by the District Planning Team. Among the members are 10 community members. 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 first official meeting will take place towards the end of September. I want to thank our committee members in advance for volunteering for this very important and exciting work.
