Community Diversity Alliance

The Community Diversity Alliance (CDA) fosters community engagement and parental involvement and is a forum for community-based diversity conversations. Each of the schools has its own CDA, which encourages building-specific diversity programming and activities; student engagement with diversity activities; and parent study and discussion groups. Our district organization is focused on outreach. In the last year (20-21) we adopted families in need, not just for the holidays, but throughout the school year, checking in with them periodically.
