Looking for a New Year’s Resolution that will make a difference for both your child and the entire school community? Consider joining a district-level committee. There are a variety of opportunities to lend your voice to make a long-lasting impact. Parent input is needed on all of the following committees:
Cultural Proficiency Committee: This new MSD committee will explore what it means to be a “culturally proficient school” and will outline our district’s strengths and areas for improvement in making sure our schools provide equal access to all students. Actions will be developed to make sure students from all backgrounds feel included and valued.
Coordinating Council: This long-standing MSD committee has evolved from reviewing supplemental district programs to developing and overseeing the implementation of the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan), the District’s road map to the future. In other words, this committee decides the overarching direction and focus for our schools.
School Safety Committee: This committee has had a great influence state-wide on the way safety concerns (specifically child-abuse reporting) are handled at the school level. Currently, the Safety Committee develops and monitors MSD’s Comprehensive Student Safety Plan, which includes issues such as emergency preparedness, digital citizenship and campus security.
Student Wellness: This committee was established in the fall of 2016 and is charged with ensuring that schools are in compliance with our district’s “Wellness” board policy. Anticipated work of this committee will include how we address the physical, social, and emotional health of our students.
If you have an interest in any of the above topics, please contact your school principal or Camille Santi, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent (925-377-4101), to find out more! Our schools’ success depends on the involvement and collaboration of all stakeholders. Please join our efforts!
