Equity Committee

Purpose: The purpose of this committee is to provide guidelines to the district and school board on equity related issues.

Membership: The current membership of the Equity Committee represents a wide background of people that reflects the diversity of the district. The common bond that brings these individuals together is their concern for our students and their passion to improve our schools. The committee meets on a regular basis to discuss various items of interests – cultural proficiency, course/program enrollment trends, building report cards, anti-bullying curriculum (Olweus Program, Second Step), and the needs of our community. Meetings are held approximately three times a year during a week night in the Board Room from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Dr. Erica Goldstone, Director of Equity and Student Support, Davenport Community School Distinct, 1606 Brady Street, Davenport, IA 52803 or email at goldstonee@mail.davenport.k12.ia.us.
