(Diversity, Unity & Equity Team)

DUET’s Mission:

DUET will play a vital role in shaping a school culture that promotes an inclusive, diverse, and equitable learning environment. All MS 51 students should feel that they belong and that their experiences and perspectives matter. All MS 51 families are welcome and their voices count.

If you'd like to get involved with DUET's work, please email DUET@k051.org!

What are we working on?

If you have visited any MS 51 classrooms this year, you may have noticed our new ABCs of MS 51 graphic! Last year’s committee adapted these ABCs and hope they can serve as a touchstone for our committee and school community.

  • Achievement, because all students are up to the task and can grow
  • Belonging, because we affirm every child, their family and their community
  • Commitment, because it takes all of us working together to build an equitable community
