comité
Explanation:
It's a military metaphor: destacamento especial, fuerza expedicionario.

Task Force implies a specially constituted group to resolve a very specific problem.

As an alternative to Equipo de Trabajo, which doesn't really convey this idea, I suggest Comité Especial or 'Comité para + what it's for'(i.e. give it its name)

grupo de trabajo o comisión


Explanation:
"A efectos de asegurar que todos los estudiantes reciban una educación de alta calidad, el consejo de educación ha constituido* un grupo de trabajo compuesta por administradores, profesores..." Two links below, one Spanish, the other from Uruguay featuring grupo de trabajo and Education ministries and institutions. There are hundreds more. *May be also: establecido, instituido, fundado. Constituido is the one i think that fits better in this context...sounds right-errr I guess. Suerte :)

Explanation:
Ooops!: where it says "compuesta" it should say "compuesto". And where it says "...o comisión", well, it shouldn't say it, I thought I had deleted it. Jeez, can never be too careful in this business...cheers :)
