Our Advisory Council
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Council, comprised of students, staff, businesses and organization members, 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 2030 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 council meets monthly at the Dr. Jim Vaszauskas Center for the Performing Arts Center. All meeting agendas and minutes are posted here.
