Our district has been working on Cultural Compentency for several years and this is the next step in the journey.  Naada Hassen and Elizabeth Johnson have agreed to represent Clover Ridge.  As you know, our demographics have changed considerably and this is an opportunity to have input and influence along with discussing current concerns for our building and district.   If you are interested, please contact Naada or Elizabeth.  This is important work for our building and community of learners.

PURPOSE:
Eastern Carver County Schools received a grant to support the district’s work on equity. This grant supports our “Intercultural Harmony” initiative and the work of approximately 150 people who will serve as ambassadors in our community. Every school along with community partners, are participating in this district-wide initiative.
WHAT IT IS:
If this is something you would like to be a part of, you will have the opportunity to engage in conversation about the topics of diversity, inclusion and equity. Our hope is that, as an ambassador, you will be able to share the insight you gain from these conversations into your work and personal life.
COMMITMENT: There is a formal Intercultural Harmony “kick-off” event on Oct. 11 from 6-8 pm, at the Arboretum. If interested, a formal invitation will be sent to you for this event. All ambassadors district-wide will be joining for this event. Following this, a small group within our building will meet six times over the course of year to discuss various topics pertaining to equity. The dates and times for these meetings will vary depending on our group’s schedules and preferences. We are hoping for at least 8-10 people to join this initiative from both the community and the school.
