Community Action Team

Community Action Team Group Photo

OFPE's Community Engagement Division is proud to introduce the Community Action Team (CAT). The team is comprised of four (4) individuals who represent communities based on DCPS Clusters.

Each CAT coordinator is responsible for building and sustaining strategic relationships with key community stakeholders, specifically those who have been historically underrepresented in our decision-making process.

The CAT is also responsible for assisting DCPS stakeholders in support of their access to information and resources offered by DCPS and communicating emerging needs and trends back to DCPS.

Katie Mustian, Clusters 4 and 7

Katie grew up in Kentucky and was most recently a DCPS teacher. Her career with DCPS began in 2011 as a UELIP intern in the Office of Early Childhood Education where she learned how essential it is to actively engage parents and communities at every stage of their child’s education. By studying Policy and Organizational Leadership in graduate school, she was able to examine what levers can be put in place to ensure that schools are reflective of and responsive to their communities. Katie’s work is driven by the belief that students are more successful when the adults in their lives model what it looks like to work together. She currently resides in NW DC and is excited to collaborate with DCPS families and community members. Visit the Facebook page.
