Commitment to Equity Statement

  • Washington Elementary School District (WESD) is proud to serve a diverse population of over 20,000 students. WESD is committed to achieving equitable outcomes for all students and staff in order that they find academic, as well as, social and emotional success.

    Our students, their families and staff represent multiple races and ethnicities with over 70 home languages and cultures. Students need to see a strong connection between their home life, their community, and their school, which strengthen a student’s sense of belonging and motivation. Honoring the varied talents, backgrounds and experiences of our students’ families and community members greatly supports student success. Learning depends upon social interactions and students actively constructing knowledge and understanding by connecting their experience of home culture, language and life experiences with what they learn in school.

    Therefore, WESD places a high priority on being informed and knowledgeable about each students’ cultural background and their unique home and community experiences. District leadership, school leaders and staff are committed to partnering with students, families and community members to develop policies, procedures and practices that create and continuously improve equity, diversity and inclusion in WESD.
