Inclusive and Authentic Engagement

As a district, we value listening to and learning from our community.

We will seek ways to make sure all voices can be heard, especially those that might be underrepresented in our community. We will use culturally responsive ways to engage so we build trusting relationships and empower the voices of those who can help us meet these needs.
