Hopefully the first weeks of school have gone great for you, and for those community members who aren’t in education I wish this email finds you well.  I would like to invite you to participate in the 2013-2014 Allen ISD Diversity Committee.  Dr. Zoeller has asked me to help organize and continue the great work that many of you who have been a part of the committee in the past have started.  It is our objective to continue the diversity committee’s work to ensure that the district is meeting the needs of all its culturally diverse students.   Our goal is to meet quarterly throughout the school year on the following dates to discuss topics that address our objective.  

Meeting Dates:

October 29th

December 10th

 February 25th

May 13th  

During the meeting we highlighted the past committee’s goals and accomplishments and came up with this year’s goals.  Other goals that were discussed but we felt needed to be implemented more long term or could be addressed/aided by this year’s goals were:

  • Increase the number of minority teachers, administrators, principals, and auxiliary staff across the district
  • Develop an accountability protocol for hiring and diversity based goals

·       Hire a director of diversity for the district in charge of recruitment and diversity needs

Thank you for joining us as we continue our work to maintain Allen ISD as an inspiring learning environment for all students.
