PARENT-LED COMMITTEES

INCLUSIVENESS AND DIVERSITY COMMITTEE (IDC)

The MSC Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee (IDC) is dedicated to creating a shared school community of families and educators that embraces and reflects the diversity of our District and our City.  Creating such a community takes intentional and collaborative work; our mission is to raise the collective awareness and cultural competencies of members of the community. We are committed to making MSC a school where all voices are heard, valued, and respected towards shaping an inclusive and welcoming community.
