Equity & Diversity

MCHS District #111’s position is clear - we oppose bigotry, hatred, inequality in all forms, indirect or overt. 
We recognize and empathize with the pain that our minority community feels. This website is a place to collect and share our material, resources, new developments, and action plans our district is committed to. 

Program Origins:

In August 2019, our Board of Education and staff participated in Cultural Competence training, and we recently completed a system-wide cultural assessment in March 2020 led by Erika Walker-Thomas of The Walker-Thomas Group. (Please find results of the cultural assessment here.) We appreciate the students, parents, community members, teachers, and administrators who have volunteered to participate on our Equity and Diversity Committee. Although we feel the work of that committee has been valuable, their commitment, coupled with the results of the Cultural Assessment findings will certainly gain traction in the coming months and years to come.
