  • Engage in and support professional learning related to diversity, equity, and inclusion;

  • Review and discuss district data related to diversity, equity, and inclusion;

  • Advise the development of the district's Equity Action Plan;

  • Prioritize action steps and facilitate the implementation of the Equity Pillar of the School/District Improvement Plan.

Meetings Monthly

Equity Team Leaders

These leaders are teachers, administrators, and central office staff members who have volunteered to lead their individual Equity Teams and serve as part of the District's Equity Team. These individuals inspire and create the conditions for self-empowerment of their Equity Team Members as their Equity Team coordinates work within the scope of the District Equity Action Plan.


If you have further questions about Equity Team Leaders, please contact one of the team leads listed below or CSD's Equity Director, Mari Ann Banks.


School Equity Teams

Each of the 10 schools in the CSD system has an active Equity Team. Team members are a cohort of teachers and administrators in each school, who have volunteered to serve with and are connected to each other through their desire to eliminate systemic racism toward students of color in CSD and inspire equitable outcomes for all students. Teams commit to provide and support professional development, educate students, and lead caretakers in each school toward fighting against racism in all its forms, examining personal prejudices, and executing CSD’s Equity Action Plan throughout their school. This group inspires and creates the conditions for self-empowerment as all school staff work together to achieve the common goals noted above.
