Equity Advisory Committee

In an ongoing effort to improve employment and education experiences for a diverse body of people, DMPS has formed the Educational Equity Advisory Committee (EEAC). The committee is made up of a diverse group of teachers, students, parents and guardians, administrators and members of the community.

The EEAC is appointed by the Des Moines Public Schools Office of Human Resources, and serves to advise Equity Coordinator Isaiah McGee, Superintendent Dr. Thomas Ahart, and the Des Moines School Board on issues related to diversity and equity.

One of the committee’s foundational beliefs is that integration on the basis of race, gender and disability in our schools and education programs will help to prepare students to live more positively in a world that is very diverse.
