Equity Leadership Steering Committee

Mission Statement

The Equity Leadership Steering Committee promotes continuous learning, skill building, and dialogue in MSAD #51 to create an anti-racist, inclusive community.


Shared Definition of Equity

Equity is a dynamic system that addresses past and present inequalities and constantly evaluates conditions to ensure that all people have unhindered access to the resources and opportunities that enable them to thrive.


The Equity Leadership Steering Committee meets on the third Tuesday of
each month at 3:15 pm.
