Comprises faculty and staff from schools and departments across 9̽. It was established in SY17-18 and has been meeting regularly ever since. The Council met monthly in SY19-20 and SY20-21, and meetings were facilitated by the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The Council’s charge: Help guide the district’s diversity, equity and inclusion work, particularly in the areas of curricula, professional development, hiring and retention, school culture, and family engagement.

UPDATE, Fall 2021: The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership Council will transition to a superintendent-led Equity Advisory Committee – a group smaller in size – that will be coordinated and inclusive of parents, community members, students, and district staff working collaboratively to achieve equitable outcomes for all students through the WPS Equity Strategic Plan. Please stay tuned for information on how to apply for membership on this committee.
