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; and student and parent engagement with diversity activities. Our district organization is focused on outreach. As a host of the annual Back-to-School Bash, we organize school supply and backpack drives, as well as connect with resource providers to share pertinent information with families. Everything offered at the event is free - Backpacks, school supplies, refreshments, entertainment, haircuts, and more.
