Diversity Council

The Midlothian ISD Diversity Council is a district-wide effort involving our teachers, parents, staff members, principals and community members. We listen to each other as we share our stories and perspectives to create a learning environment where our uniqueness is celebrated and we recognize the power of diversity. 

This is an ongoing and evolving process, and our diversity council is a space to have open, honest and respectful discussions. We are creating goals and measures for cultural proficiency in MISD and serving as an advisory committee with district leadership. Together, we will shape our world and promote inclusivity for each member of our MISD family.

Board of Trustees Resolution

On July 20, 2020, the Diversity Council proposed a resolution to the Board of Trustees stating that Midlothian ISD will stand for diversity, inclusion, and equity as essential facets of our community and celebrate each person as an individual. View the full resolution below.
