District Equity Team

The Tarrytown District Equity Team (DET) began its work in the 2019-2020 school year, with a clear mission to promote a community that values equity and racial justice. The DET serves as an accountability mechanism to monitor and address disparities in attendance, achievement, discipline, access, opportunity, and lived experience in the district. The DET meets monthly to engage in critical self-reflection and plan actionable steps for continuous improvement.  

Equity is institutional work, not just interpersonal work. Paul Gorski, Equity Literacy Institute Founder
