Presentation: http://prezi.com/zikqou4vxs_g/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy&rc=ex0share

The committee members reviewed last meetings minutes.

Committee discussed diversity programs being implemented around the district

Committee reviewed goals for the year and viewed several area and regional district’s websites for ideas for Allen ISD’s diversity page.  In the discussion we arrived at the following conclusions in response to the action steps for goal 1:


Begin with one language translation (Spanish) of major components of the district website.

Diversity TAB on the main Allen ISD page under the Our district section. 

Create a narrated slide show highlighting Allen ISD’s diverse community ending with one big group shot comprised of all the different backgrounds “saying welcome to Allen ISD”  (similar to  Mansfield ISD’s video)

The page should also have our demographic info as well as sublinks containing:

-Committee info

Mission statement

Goals for the year

Idea of posting committee minutes on diversity page to increase community involvement

-Diversity  calendar highlighting major cultural events and district/school sponsored diversity activities

Also discussed the possibility of including a Contact us portion to allow schools to draw attention to what diverse things are going on their campuses as well as PTA collaboration on what is going on with diversity on campuses.

Next meeting on May 13th will address goal #2 as well as lay groundwork and dates for next school year.
