Ongoing coordination, evaluation, and revisions of programs and policies designed to achieve student equity. The committee shall also decide matters of dispersal of funds such as those from statewide equity initiatives and track yearly expenditures related to that funding and/or other funding designated for assessing and mitigating disproportionate impact.
