Welcome to the Equity Advisory Council Page

Pasco County Schools is committed to providing high quality, equitable, and rigorous educational opportunities for all students, as well as an equitable and inclusive workplace for all employees.

The Equity Advisory Council (EAC) has been formed to identify areas where the school district could make progress toward a more equitable school experience and workplace, and to offer solutions and strategies for accelerating that progress. The EAC comprises a diverse group of school district personnel, parents, community members, and community leaders who have volunteered to participate.

On the web page you will find information regarding the EAC as well as resources regarding Pasco Schools’ ongoing efforts to provide equity in our schools and workplaces.

Superintendent Browning provides an overview of the purpose of the Equity Advisory Council.
