Equity Committee-

Co-Chair: TBD

The Equity Committee seeks to assure robust representation and consideration of groups experiencing historic and enduring marginalization (due to their race, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation) in school activities, policies and practices. We achieve this through community programming for minority students and their families, and community outreach to groups underrepresented at TES. Additionally our group compiles existing research evidence, completes new data collection, and directly advocates to the TES Board. If you are interested in participating in our group please email equity@tes-ca.com

Resource of the Week:

Link to 2020 – 2021 Past Resources

During the 2020-2021 academic year, limited by a pandemic and with the desire to keep learning, the Equity Committee began a program to learn about diversity, equity, and inclusion. A committee member would select a reading or other resource, the committee would share it with the community through the TESCA newsletter, discuss it in the committee meeting using 3 questions, then send out a followup piece in the newsletter with lessons learned for our community. The three questions were:

How does this material affect me?

How does this material affect TES?

How does this material affect our community?
