ANTI-BIAS, ANTI-RACISM (ABAR) ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

The ABAR Advisory Committee will meet the second Monday of the month from 5:30 pm-6:45 pm beginning December 13, 2021.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Anti-Bias, Anti-Racism Advisory Committee (ABAR) shall be to examine issues related to bias, racism, and inequity in the District to actively guide the district in continuously identifying, describing, and dismantling the systemic racism and oppression embedded within our schools and communities. Through the combined efforts of staff, students and community members, the committee will collectively develop actionable steps for the work needed to transform our systems and policies and make recommendations to the governing board on issues related to bias, racism, and inequity.

During each meeting, the committee holds "Courageous Conversations" related to bias and racist practices in MDUSD.

Our first presentation of recommendations and actionable items will be presented to the Board of Education at the June 22, 2022 Board Meeting.
