The Manhasset Board of Education seeks members for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Groups

The Manhasset Board of Educations’ goals and priorities found here: https://www.manhassetschools.org/Page/9973 for the 2021-2022 school year build on the District’s mission and vision of creating a learning environment in which we recognize each child as an individual with the potential to achieve their personal best.

Our goals are highlighted on the District’s website, www.manhassetschools.org and on the video linked here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hUCP796CME Closely aligned with these goals, and focused on the needs of our local community, are the District’s initiatives in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

These initiatives are designed to engage the school community in furthering our District’s goals by ensuring a sense of belonging, in a school environment that is welcoming, safe and supportive for all.

The Board is seeking Manhasset residents to volunteer to serve on one of four DEI working groups focusing on: Community Connections; Student Experiences; Areas of Disproportionality; Personnel. Community members will join with faculty, staff, students, and a Board of Education liaison in these initiatives.

Each Working Group will collaborate on their area of focus and ultimately make recommendations to the Board of Education. Initial meetings are anticipated to cover: where are we now, where would we like to go, and what might success look like in each area.

While individual groups will develop their schedules collaboratively once they have been formed, volunteers should be available to meet at least once a month, primarily in person, in the afternoon after school, beginning in February and through the month of May.

INTERESTED VOLUNTEERS

Interested residents should complete a form on the District’s website at https://www.manhassetschools.org/Page/294 to indicate which Working Group they you would like to serve on. A summary description of each group is included on the form. The form must be returned to the District Clerk, 516-267-7724, no later than Friday, March 18, 2022 either by email to: [email protected], or by mail to: District Clerk, Manhasset Public Schools, 200 Memorial Place, Manhasset, NY 11030
