DAC Application Window (Extended)
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 Huntsville City Schools a pathway for providing equitable educational opportunities to all of its students, regardless of race, and for eventually reaching “Unitary Status.” Implementation of this Consent Order touches on almost every aspect of Huntsville City Schools.
The Desegregation Advisory Committee (DAC) serves an important role in the desegregation case and in the community. The DAC advises the Superintendent about Huntsville City Schools’ implementation of the Consent Order by collecting community feedback 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. Consistent with the Consent Order, Huntsville City Schools and the United States Department of Justice are now seeking applications from parents and guardians to serve on the 2018-19 DAC.
The DAC consists of 10 parents/guardians and 6 high school students, one from each high school. Parents/guardians serve a two-year term. If you are interested in serving as a member of the 2018-19 DAC, we welcome your application! Please note that if you applied last year, you do not need to reapply this year to be considered for the DAC.
