Our Advisory Council

DEI logo final

A Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Council was formed to provide support, feedback and guidance to the Board of Trustees about issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion throughout Mansfield ISD.

Working together to fulfill the district’s Vision 2020 values of students first, continuous improvement, integrity, communication, positive relationships and resiliency, the council makes recommendations to the Board regarding changes to policy, procedures and practice within Mansfield ISD.

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Council works with staff to analyze the inclusion, equity and access needs of the district. The council will make recommendations to the Board on opportunities to insure that Mansfield ISD is a safe learning community in which all voices are valued, students and staff have a sense of belonging and feel connected to each other, their school and the MISD community.
