Equity Resource Library
Students in the grades are participating in story times & child-centered discussions led by faculty. The story time topics include themes that reflect the various lenses that JeffCo Public Schools uses to support student and community engagement. These story times are being developed, along with resources for our school’s families and professional development for our faculty and staff.
The resources on this page are intended to support and supplement the equity story times that are held at MPCS.
