Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Founded in September 2020, the PTAC DEI Committee is comprised of parent & staff representatives from our ACPS schools. We are fortunate to have all ACPS major languages and ethnicities represented in the group! We meet on a monthly basis during the school year.

Partner with ACPS to identify and develop family engagement opportunities;
Assist in connecting PTA units with other community stakeholders to effectively form partnerships that support family engagement;
Provide training to local PTA leaders in diversity & inclusion best practices.
