Hi everyone! I am working with the Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD), specifically the Office of the Superintendent. The District’s mission is “We educate and empower every student, in every community, every day, to build a stronger Detroit.” My specific project is a policy modernization project. I am tasked with looking over all 400 of the district’s policies. This includes making appropriate amendments, compiling a spreadsheet of policy info into different categories, and ensuring the policies include inclusive language. I’m currently on Policy 196 lol. It’s definitely a heavy task, but one I’m eager to do my best on.
As far as DCERP, I’m really enjoying my time getting to know you all. I look forward to Thursday’s meetings a lot. It feels like a comfortable, safe space. I also really like my learning group; we plan on watching Wall-E to discuss environmental justice which I think is sort of funny. I hope I have a better chance to connect with you all.
Thanks for reading, and let’s see what’s to come for Week 3! It feels like time is flying by.
