Our approval and vetting process is designed to find member schools and networks that are committed to recruiting, enrolling, and serving a diverse and integrated student body reflective of their broader community.
We are looking for schools that demonstrate thoughtful work to promote high academic outcomes for students of all backgrounds; hire and train a diverse group of teachers and leaders; create a school culture in which all students and families feel welcomed, respected, and included; and confront institutional racism. We see school integration as ongoing work.
Our member schools don’t have all the answers; rather, we seek members that are reflective about their own strengths and challenges in the areas outlined above and are committed to constant striving to improve their efforts and outcomes with respect to diversity and integration.
The Coalition is being built by and for our members. In addition to the programming and supports provided by the Coalition, all members are expected to lean in and take ownership of the DCSC in what we can offer each other. We ask members to reflect on the supports, from programmatic to financial, that will ensure we build a more sustainable and effective organization.
Interested in Joining? Complete the following short survey. DCSC staff will review all submissions and will follow up with those schools that show initial alignment with the Coalition’s work about the next steps in the membership process.
PLEASE NOTE: We’re not currently accepting membership inquiries from schools still in the process of opening. However, we’d still love to hear from you via the survey. You can also get updates about the Coalition by signing up for our Newsletter.
