Diversity Committee Mission

  • The Fairbanks North Star Borough is a diverse community, and the school district embodies that diversity. The sixteen-member Diversity Committee provides administration officials with a wide range of perspectives to assist in maintaining an educational environment that embraces and supports equity, equality, inclusivity, and an openness to our diversity. The committee is charged with keeping the administration informed of specific concerns and helping find ways to encourage all students and parents to become involved in educational opportunities and school activities.

Serve on the Diversity Committee

  • The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District is soliciting applications from people interested in serving as a volunteer committee member on the Diversity Committee. The Diversity Committee will act in an advisory capacity regarding diversity issues in the school district.

    We currently have openings for (3) Parent Representatives and (1) Community members.
