Dr. Reigstad Joins NYS Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

Dr. Reigstad

A member of our very own Board of Education, Trustee Dr. Thomas Reigstad, has been named to represent the Area 1 region on the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee. Area 1 includes Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee and Wyoming counties.

The charge of the DEI Committee is to support efforts to facilitate the elimination of the current barriers which exist in NYS that preclude all students from being provided with equitable educational opportunities and outcomes.

The first meeting is next month, and Dr. Reigstad is looking forward to sharing what he learns here in our community.

NYSSBA is a statewide organization that supports the work of more than 675 local school boards and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES). Click here to learn more.
