Equity Teams

As a part of CSD's Strategic plan, the district is committed to paying our education debt to all students. Equity Teams (E-Teams) help CSD achieve this goal by facilitating the execution of our Equity Action Plan throughout the District. There is an active E-Team at each school in the CSD system and the district office. Contact information for equity team leads may be found here.


If you have further questions about E-Teams, please contact any of the team leads listed at the previous link, or CSD's Equity Director, Mari Ann Banks.
