Diversity Awareness Committee

The TISD Diversity Awareness Committee was established in 2001 to address the shortage of minority teachers.

The major goal of the committee is to increase the number and diversity of todayís teaching force reflective of our city, state and nation. Moreover, they seek to recruit minority teacher candidates who will strive to incorporate the values, learning styles and multiple cultural perspectives reflected in todayís public schools.

Their mission is to recruit, retain and support qualified professionals that reflect the ethnicity of the Districtís student population.
