Members of the Race & Equity Core Committee (RECC) commit to being leaders for race and equity at Capital City. They work with colleagues and teachers to build a culture of inquiry and improvement where staff can have courageous conversations about race, and we can make the necessary changes to interrupt inequities and fully realize our school’s mission and vision. This role is a 2-year commitment to ensure the integrity of the work.

RECC Responsibilities Include:

  • Helping realize the school’s Race and Equity vision
  • Being a resource for staff grappling with equity issues and planning courageous conversations 
  • Planning and facilitating race and equity professional development for staff 
  • Coordinating with school leaders to ensure Race and Equity work becomes a part of our regular work as a school rather than something separate
  • Supporting the planning and development of student-led equity work that is developmentally appropriate for each campus  
  • Reviewing school policies through an equity lens
  • Working with our Director of Family Engagement & Admissions and other staff to deepen family engagement work in support of equity goals  
  • Working to plan and facilitate additional events and opportunities for the Capital City community to support the determined goals and further race and equity work at Capital City
