The Community Engagement Strategy and Advocacy (CESA) team creates culturally relevant, transparent and authentic engagement strategies through consultation, strategic planning and advocacy across the district. We are committed to creating shared accountability and decision-making through mutual trust with all of our community partners, families, students, school leaders and staff. Our approach is community-led and district supported, ensuring that those closest to the pain are closest to the decision-making. We are committed to honoring our communities through storytelling, listening to understand and creating community-driven processes across our family of schools. We also provide tools to create capacity across the district because we believe that community engagement is everyone’s responsibility.
A toolkit for district staff with engagement best practices and the tools to authentically engage communities. This is one of several resources that we provide to internal departments and schools to support their community engagement work across the district.
