Ames Youth and Schools Action Team – General Meeting
January 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Inclusive Ames action group Ames Youth and Schools Action Team is holding a general meeting to continue their work on raising awareness and advocating to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in Ames Schools.
From the organizers:
AYSAT, the Ames Youth and Schools Action Team, has been working since January 2017 to raise awareness and advocate to eliminate the racial/ethnic disparities seen in Ames Schools. These disparities are not only in academic achievement, but also in disciplinary actions, enrollment in advanced classes and programs, and other areas across schools. As stated in our Mission, we believe that these disparities counter the stated goal of Ames Community School District to educate all students. Our focus is on African American and Hispanic students, because these groups are experiencing the greatest disparities.
The AYSAT Steering Committee has been meeting every two weeks and has been a presence at every School Board meeting since February 2017. It is now time to re-connect with our wider membership and recruit new supporters, to let you know what we have been doing and how you can be involved.
