Minority Achievement and Talent Committee

Minority Achievement and Talent Development  Advisory Committee Application Period Completed

The Superintendent of the Palo Alto Unified School District appreciates the interest by the community in applying for the Minority Achievement and Talent Development  Advisory Committee.  The application period is now complete. 


The purpose of this Advisory Committee is to prepare a set of strategic, evidence-based recommendations that, when implemented, will enable the PAUSD community to assure underrepresented minority students and other students from disadvantaged circumstances have the necessary opportunities, conditions, and supports that will empower and enable them to succeed as well as both realize and maximize their full intellectual, creative, and social potential. The report will identify critical issues and, for each issue, develop strategic recommendations that will include specific metrics for evaluating the extent to which each strategy was successful, suggested timelines for implementations, an individual or role (current or future) to lead each strategy, and cost estimates for implementing each recommendation. The Advisory Committee will also be asked to articulate any potential policy issues the Board should consider developing and adopting.


The application period is now closed.  For more information about this committee, you can contact the Assistant to the Superintendent, Kathleen Ruegsegger at kruegsegger@pausd.org. or by phone at 650-329-3737.
