Community Diversity Alliance

The Community Diversity Alliance (CDA) fosters community engagement and parental involvement, and is a forum for community-based diversity conversations. Each of the schools has its own CDA, which encourages building-specific diversity programming and activities; student engagement with diversity activities; and parent study and discussion groups. This past year, CDA members joined school building administrators in a book study. We selected Courageous Conversations About Race by Glenn E. Singleton. This book was read several years ago by FCSD administrators, but because of the number of new administrators, we believed it was a good time to revisit this powerful book. The members of the district CDA are:

Billy Smith, Superintendent
Sandi Stegman, Teacher, Intermediate School
Jeff Stegman, District Transportation
Gina Gentry-Fletcher, School and Community Relations Director
Stephanie Tenkman, Teacher, South Elementary
Michael Berkemeier, Principal, Freshman School
Karrie Gallo, Principal, Central Elementary School

Becky Emenaker, West Elementary School
Dr. Paige Gillespie, Principal, East Elementary School
Iva Johnson, Clerk, Intermediate School
Dawn Warren Hildreth, Teacher, Fairfield Academy
