AUSD’s Equity Round Tables provide affinity spaces for families, staff, and students of populations that have been underserved in the past. The Round Tables identify needs, communicate with staff, and hold events with the aim of providing further supports to our students, staff, and families. All are open to new members this year. We've compiled a list of the Round Tables, the work that they do, and links to their web pages for community members who are interested in getting involved with these valuable groups.
