Announcing the New Student Equity Advisory Board

CAS-CIAC is excited to announce the creation of a Student Equity Advisory Board. The SEAB will bring awareness to inequity in Connecticut and collaborate on ways to enhance inclusion in schools for all students. Student members will also develop and implement ideas and action plans to bring back to their respective leagues, schools, and the communities.

The Student Equity Advisory Board will consist of four students from each league, with each student representing a different school in the league. Student representatives do not have to be student-athletes. Students who are invited to serve on the SEAB must fill out an application, write a letter of interest, and submit a recommendation letter from a principal, teacher, coach, staff member, etc. Principals and athletic directors will send the names of their recommended students to their league commissioner by September 21, 2020. League commissioners should submit their final student selections to Cherese Miller at cmilleratcasciacdotorg by Monday, September 28, 2020.

There will be a total of eight SEAB meetings throughout the school year and students will be expected to present at CAS-CIAC conferences where appropriate. Meetings will be virtual until further notice. Below is the calendar of SEAB meeting dates for the 2020-2021 school year.
