2021-22 DAC Application Window (Extended)

Apr
22
Date: 
Thursday, April 22, 2021 to Tuesday, June 1, 2021
The STUDENT application window has been extended through June 1, 2021.  The parent application is now closed.

Huntsville City Schools and the United States Department of Justice are seeking applications from students and parents/guardians to serve on the 2021-22 Desegregation Advisory Committee (DAC). The DAC consists of 10 parents/guardians and 6 high school students, one from each high school. Students serve a one-year term.

The DAC serves an important role in the desegregation case and in the community. Huntsville City Schools is working with the United States Department of Justice to implement a Consent Order in its school desegregation case. The Consent Order establishes a pathway for Huntsville City Schools to provide equitable educational opportunities to all of its students, regardless of race, and to eventually reach “Unitary Status.” Implementation of this Consent Order touches on almost every aspect of Huntsville City Schools. The DAC provides feedback to the Superintendent about Huntsville City Schools’ implementation of the Consent Order by collecting community comments and other information pertaining to Consent Order implementation. The DAC also informs the Court of Huntsville City Schools’ progress by completing a report for the Court. In addition, the DAC annually presents its findings to the Huntsville City Schools Board of Education.

For more information about the DAC, see the HCS DAC Page or the independent DAC website.

If you are interested in serving as a member of the 2020-21 DAC, we welcome your application!

Downloadable application documents are available on each application, which are linked below.
