The Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Equity and Community Engagement is charged with leading state efforts to advance education equity, eliminate achievement gaps and increase opportunity, and decrease disproportionality in student outcomes. These efforts are collectively known as #EdEquityVA and include the following initiatives:
Formed in 2017, the Equity Advisory Committee (EAC) was charged with identifying current and best-practice findings in the division, and making recommendations that would enhance current practices or introduce new ones.
EAC Purpose: To support every Chesterfield County student being afforded the same opportunities, regardless of a student’s zip code and honor the division’s core value of equity, which is the commitment to provide fair and unbiased access to all resources and opportunities.
Members: Consists of community members, parents and CCPS staff members.
Current Work: As part of the committee’s work, the group was tasked with providing an annual report surrounding educational equity and recommendations for enhanced practices. The whole-group was divided in subcommittees to look at practices and policies across the areas of: access and opportunity, disciplinary practices, engaging stakeholders, policy and practice, professional development and staffing, recruiting and retaining. This work led to the EAC presenting 27 final recommendations for implementation consideration. Of the 27 recommendations, 16 are either, in progress or have been addressed. 11 are currently categorized as pending.
The Equity Advisory Committee continues to meet monthly, both as a whole-group and in subcommittees. Updates will continue to be provided for our community.
