Race Matters Committee

  • Race Matters Committee

    The District Race Matters Committee was formed in December 2020 with the goal of creating a space for students, BOE members, staff, parents, and community to discuss issues of race, equity, access, and the intersectionality of other marginalized groups, such as LGBTQ students in our schools. The goal of this committee is to present a series of recommendations to the Board of Education in Spring 2021 for inclusion in the District Equity Plan which will be developed during Summer 2021 for introduction in September. The committee is comprised of 40 members included in this group through an application process which included 65 people interested in participating. 


    The Race Matters Committee meets monthly and is facilitated by Natalie McCabe Zwerger, Esq. M.Ed.Director, CSS NYU Steinhardt Metro Center. The Dobbs Ferry School District is proud to partner with this national equity and racial justice center to help the District undertake this important work.
