The CPC is a committee charged with identifying Cultural Proficiency standards and developing plans to improve the Cultural Proficiency within the District.  The vision is to create a school climate of acceptance and respect so that all members of the school community enjoy equitable opportunities for professional and personal fulfillment.


The CPC also addresses and discusses “hot topics” in the District, including issues arising in the schools that challenge or conflict with the idea of embracing and valuing diversity and inclusion.
