Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
This year has brought challenges beyond our comprehension. Our nation continues to battle a global pandemic, social injustice, political strife, and new models of education. We have been reflecting in real-time on how we adapt and make fundamental changes not only in this current climate but for the future.
We are taking action this fall to transform the district in an intentional, meaningful, and research-based way. We know supporting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is the right thing to do for our staff, students, and our families.
We have put out a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a consulting firm who will do a EDI audit of the district in order to lay out a strategic plan that will better meet the needs of our community. As we begin this process, we will also start culturally responsive training this fall for all staff members in WSD3. We will share more information about this training in the next couple weeks.
Your voice is important and will play a vital role as we move forward in this journey. We will be sending monthly updates to keep you informed on where we are in the process. We look forward to starting a new chapter and renewing our commitment to staff, students, and our community.
