Received Title IX Gender Equity Audit of High School Athletic Program Presentation – A task force was formed this year to assist with the first self-audit of the high school athletic program. The audit would examine the whole athletic program and review data to determine if the historically underrepresented gender participates in, and has similar benefits to, male athletes in proportion to enrollment. The task force objective was to engage in a systematic fact-based process to: 1) identify any gender inequities across the program, and 2) propose remedies to resolve any issues; so that all students, regardless of gender, have equitable athletic experiences.

First Reading, Affinity Mentorship Course – During the spring semester of 2021, students and leaders from the Affinity and Identity Mentor program presented to the School Board. They shared stories of their first year offering a mentorship program where high school students of color mentored elementary students who shared their same racial identity. District leadership suggested that the program be institutionalized and the Board of Education agreed. After a year of conversations, instructional design, collaboration with the MHS and PHS administration, and feedback from MHS and PHS School Advisory Committees, a new high school elective course has been created. In this course, high school mentors will earn elective credits for mentoring elementary and middle school students. Read full background. Course Proposal & Course of Study. View Presentation
