About MN.DCD Mailing List

Welcome to the Minnesota Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD) mailing list for educational professionals.

This mailing list is our effort to increase statewide collaboration by learning from each other as we teach and support students with DCD. It is our hope that this method of communication will continue to be a resource that is valued and used by all of us across Minnesota.

If you have a question to ask or knowledge/information to share, this mailing list is available for you to use. You are part of a large community of educational staff with various experience and expertise in DCD.

By using this mailing list, you will be able to post your own questions and/or view other messages. You can respond with ideas to help answer member questions, or benefit from seeing the information/suggestions of other members.

Open communication is essential to stay current with promising and evidence-based practices. Our collaboration increases our knowledge and expertise in the field of DCD.

The information posted is not considered official policy or recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) and/or local educational agencies (districts, coops, and charters).


The MN.DCD Mailing List is an open list, which means moderation is open for members after they sign up. There are potentially 1,000 licensed staff, plus others with an interest in supporting students with DCD. This does include parents and advocates.

  • Ethics: Please follow ethical standards, legal data privacy policies, and respect confidentiality.

  • Confidentiality: Please do not share personal information that might be used to identify an individual and/or a district.

  • Profit: Sales or fundraising is not appropriate on the list, nor is advocating for a political agenda.

  • Accessibility: Messages are more accessible in plain text or sans-serif fonts (e.g., Arial, Calibri).

  • Relevance: Post information that is specific to supporting children and young adults with DCD.

  • Generalizability: It is an expectation that members will “reply all” to most messages with information or suggestions that are valuable to the member community. However, when you reply to a message, carefully consider whether you want to "Reply to all" (the entire mailing list) or only to the sender of the message with "Reply". If it is a resource that you think others would find valuable, please share with all.

  • Time and attention: Please do not reply to all on the mailing list with a message that you would like the members to “reply to all”. It is assumed that most messages will be replied to all, so if you want to ensure that you get any messages that were not shared with the entire mailing list, please reply to the original email sender only. The mailing list moderator can set a member status to moderate posts to support this expectation, as needed.

  • Process: To send an email message to all the other educators on the DCD mailing list, address the "To" line to:, compose your message, and then "Send". Please use your name/contact information in all your correspondence.

If you are aware of others who want to be added to this mailing list, have them contact Garrett Petrie at
