HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Consent Order between Huntsville City Schools and the U.S. Department of Justice has brought many changes to the classroom this year. The school system remains under a desegregation order, and as it works to get out from under federal oversight, several steps are required.

One facet is the Desegregation Advisory Committee, or DAC, which will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lee High School lecture hall.

The DAC is comprised of 10 parents and two students who meet and give feedback to the school system and Department of Justice about how the Consent Order is being implemented. They also answer parent concerns.

At the April 5 meeting, the public will be allowed to make comments to the committee about how the Consent Order is being implemented.

Additional information is available on huntsvillecityschools.org.  Comments may be provided in advance through the Consent Order Implementation page.
