Engagement, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Department of Engagement, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion advances diversity, equity, and inclusion via strategic engagement efforts that align with the Community School Model Pillars, to support the district’s three Strategic Framework Goals.

Family Youth & Community Engagement

Family Youth & Community Engagement promotes strong youth-family-school-community partnerships and advocacy that lend to student success. This focus is rooted in MMSD’s commitment to equity and anti-racism, and is reflected in our use of a targeted universalism framework that centers the needs of our historically marginalized and underserved family and student groups.

When you become a volunteer, your work takes on special significance — though you are not part of the staff, you do share the same responsibilities of keeping students safe. School volunteers may be parents or community members. Volunteers can be utilized in a variety of situations in schools, ranging from one time only events to monthly, weekly or daily commitments. They may provide tutorial help, monitor lunchrooms, assist in the libraries, lunchrooms or playgrounds.

Black Excellence

Black Excellence may mean something different to everyone. We will not define what it means to you. We know that Black Excellence is grounded in the understanding that it already exists. For some, it may be a process of discovery to uncover and nurture it. For others, it only needs to be affirmed and supported. Black Excellence begins with beliefs and a mindset, guided by our core values as a district.
