    Diversity Committee Application

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough is a diverse community, and the school district embodies that diversity. In the '90s, the Board of Education organized a standing committee to address issues of racial respect in the district. Made up of eleven members, this committee advises the administration on matters pertaining to the education of students of all diversities. These dedicated community volunteers keep the board informed of specific concerns of the district's diverse population and help find ways to encourage minority students and parents to become involved in school activities.
