The Welcome to DCSD: Exploring Our School District resourceful online program is a collaboration with MALDEF and their Parent School Partnership program. Since 1989, thousands of parents have successfully completed MALDEF’s PSP program, “parents are our nation’s best hope for ensuring that public schools educate and prepare well our future national leaders and contributors to community progress.” This program provides parents with the information and advocacy tools necessary to become more effective advocates in improving their children’s educational attainment, their schools, and their community. www.maldef.org
