EAC seeking members

SCDSB Equity Advisory Committee seeks parent/guardian members
Posted on 04/04/2024

The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) is committed to identifying and removing barriers within our system to ensure that all students and staff are offered supportive, inclusive, and respectful learning and working environments. To support this work, the SCDSB has an Equity Advisory Committee (EAC) comprised of parents/guardians, trustees, students, community partner organizations or associations, and board staff.

The SCDSB is seeking new parent/guardian members for the EAC. Applications are open until Monday, May 20, 2024. Applicants must:

  • be a parent/guardian of a current SCDSB student
  • be from a community that has traditionally experienced barriers to equal access, opportunities, and resources
  • reside in Simcoe County
  • not be an employee of the SCDSB

The role of the EAC is to work in partnership with the SCDSB on the review, development, implementation, and monitoring of initiatives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The EAC supports members of the SCDSB community and encourages equitable outcomes, sense of belonging, student achievement, and well-being, in alignment with the SCDSB Strategic Priorities.

Apply to be a parent/guardian member of the EAC.

This initiative links directly to the SCDSB Strategic Priorities in the area of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
