Equity AVL Website
supported by Asheville City Schools and Asheville City Schools Foundation
Our initiative was forged from a series of community conversations called the Choosing Equity Series which was designed to specifically address the challenging history and current manifestations of racial inequities in Asheville. Each event in the four-part series was intentionally designed to amplify the voices of students and adults of color. Over 1,000 diverse civic, faith, education leaders, and community members leaned into honest conversations about where we've been as a district, strategies being implemented, and how to work together to advance excellence with equity for all our children.
