Standard 3: Clear and transparent systems are established to address concerns about meeting the goals in this charter, and about the cultural climate as a whole.

What is the CPC?

The charge of the Cultural Proficiency Committee is to identify cultural proficiency standards, measures MSD can test/evaluate against these standards and then develop plans to improve our cultural proficiency where there are gaps. For the 2018-19 school year, meetings will be held at 3:30 PM at Los Perales School in room 4. Meeting dates: Sept. 24, Nov. 26, Jan. 28, Mar. 25 and May 20.
