    We are currently seeking membership applications for the district’s inaugural PPS Racial Equity and Social Justice Community Advisory Committee (RESJ CAC). This committee will advise both the Superintendent and School Board about about the racial equity and education impacts of policy decisions and work collaboratively to increase understanding and progress towards the PPS Racial Educational Equity Policy and the PPS RESJ Plan and Framework, PPS reImagined, and the PPS Strategic Plan.

    We are seeking to fill the remaining 12 positions from a diverse pool of applications from students, staff and PPS parents with lived experience to be able to provide critical advice and feedback to ensure that PPS meets its mission and vision to prepare students to lead a more just world.

    Information about the RESJ CAC can be found in the PPS RESJ Community Advisory Committee charter. You can visit our website to find additional background information as well.  

    Here are links in different languages for the application: English, Spanish, Somali, Vietnamese, Chinese, Russian. Applications are due by October 20th and will be reviewed by PPS Staff, Board and the Superintendent with a recommendation for membership made to the PPS School Board for approval at the November 1st School Board Meeting.
