Join Us for Anchored in Advocacy Virtual Event

Graduation photoshoot for DSISD in May 2019.

Join DPS from 5 – 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9 for a virtual event designed to celebrate African American family and student engagement, highlighting social and academic excellence. Hosted by the African American Equity Task Force, this is the third event in a series of programming created to celebrate, educate and inform families on how to navigate DPS systems and structures.

School staff, families and community members can nominate students who have demonstrated advocacy in their school and/or community. All nominated students will be recognized at the event. Click here to nominate a student and/or register for the event.

As we get ready to join the celebration of National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID), we encourage you to nominate a parent or family member to be highlighted during the Anchored in Advocacy event. Click here to nominate a parent/family member.
