We are aiming for maximum participation from parents of the underrepresented student population to ensure this new document meets the needs of all students. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to [email protected] and the name of your child's school and grade. Our collective voices are essential, and our diverse perspectives are critical to further academic achievement for each and every student, so come out and share your thoughts.

MSAAC is deeply disturbed to learn that children within LCPS continue to be traumatized by the viral effects of racism on school grounds. During our virtual general body meeting on Nov. 17, the community listened to current and former LCPS students share memories and the damaging effects of microaggressions experienced within LCPS. LCPS must work harder to protect underrepresented students who continue to be harmed by ideologies and behaviors that inhibit their ability to achieve and grow healthfully. MSAAC implores each and every adult within the LCPS community, including families, to commit to teaching kindness and acceptance of differences. In today's climate, we must be particularly vigilant to protect and cherish the minds, innocence, and vitality of our children. Partner with us by writing your school board representative and promoting change that supports the achievement of each and every LCPS student.

Our hearts are heavy as we ponder the loss of a tireless ally in Broad Run District Representative Leslee King. She was, in the words of Superintendent Dr. Scott A. Ziegler, “a positive force for good.” A committed partner, she served as MSAAC's liaison to the Loudoun County School Board for the past two years. She was a steady presence in our meetings and cared deeply about the needs of all children. Ms. King was a longtime supporter of social injustice and the fight for equality for all, having been present during Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington. She dedicated her life to serving others, and for that we commend her. MSAAC extends our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Ms. King. She was a gem in our community and will be greatly missed.

Governor Northam has designated April 2021 as the Month of the Military Child. Frequent moves, family separations through deployments, and reintegration following deployments can make school, home, and community life challenging for military children. Yet, even in such circumstances, these students continually demonstrate resilience and perseverance. Their contributions to our schools and communities also include unique and valuable perspectives on learning, friendships, and growing up.

On Friday, March 26, 2021, MSAAC issued a call to action to our community supporters asking for help in ensuring those in favor of equity in education have their voices heard. We would like to sincerely apologize to anyone who may have felt as though your voice would be silenced or who has been offended by our post as that is not now, nor has it ever been our goal or intention.

While we stand behind the five call to action steps, the post that accompanied them was shared in error. It was a personal statement taken out of context and not at all reflective of the MSAAC committee or LCPS as a whole, and does not align with our mission and goals.

We are fully supportive and welcoming of all opposing views and the rights of those who hold them to be able to express them in a civil manner. We do not condone violence nor threats of violence. We are a group of parent volunteers focused on ensuring equity in education for all LCPS students.

MSAAC is dedicated to advancing the academic, social, and cultural development of every student and to ensuring that the needs of all minority students are met. As one of two parent-led advisory committees to the Loudoun County Public School Board, we serve as a critical component to ensuring these needs are addressed throughout the system. Our goal is to help ensure all learners in the classroom have a positive and supportive environment.
