    This session is the second of four stand-alone sessions offered during the 2021-22 school year. Each session:

    • Focuses on a specific topic about equity in schools
    • Helps parents/guardians learn why this issue is important
    • Introduces research and data
    • Helps parents/guardians understand how these issues show up in their children's schools
    • Provides resources and tools parent/guardians can use at home to reinforce these concepts with their children

     

    Sessions offered during the 2021-22 school year:

    • September 21, 2021, 6:30-8pm - Click here for the presentation and materials from that session.

    Each school site has created a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee via the school PTA. These committees will be conducting follow up meetings and activities related to, and expanding on, the community sessions.

     

    The information shared at these workshops is the same information that Mill Valley School District educators are learning this year as part of the district's professional development. No prior experience is required and we welcome everyone who wants to nurture school communities where each student is welcomed and their life experiences recognized.
