Equity Leadership Team

The Equity Leadership Team (ELT) is responsible for diversity-related policy issues such as review of strategic goals, professional development needs, and curriculum changes. It is a clearinghouse for district-wide diversity initiatives, and the team promotes diversity-related events. The ELT presents an annual report to the Board of Education and community to update our progress with this work. All presentations are included in the files at the bottom of this page. The Diversity Plan is also included in the file list.
