Standard 1: Students, families, and staff value human differences and varied perspectives, and own their responsibility to respect others.

Standard 2: Curriculum and programs reflect the broad diversity within our local, national, and international communities.

Standard 3: Clear and transparent systems are established to address concerns about meeting the goals in this charter, and about the cultural climate as a whole.

What is the CPC?

The charge of the Cultural Proficiency Committee is to identify cultural proficiency standards, measures MSD can test/evaluate against these standards and then develop plans to improve our cultural proficiency where there are gaps. For the 2019-20 school year, meetings will be held at 3:30 PM at Los Perales School in room 4. Meeting dates: Aug. 19, Oct. 28, Jan. 13, Mar. 16 and May 11.
