EDC Digest- November 2020

WHPS Equity and Diversity Council


West Hartford Public Schools boasts a rich tapestry of diversity and culture. The Equity and Diversity Council (EDC) currently exists as a faculty and staff advisory that seeks to promote equity, advance diversity, and foster inclusiveness, acceptance, mutual respect and support, civility and nondiscrimination across all areas of our district’s programs and services. The work of the EDC is aligned with the WHPS’ Mission and Vision for Equity and Anti-Racism.

The EDC is a district-wide structure that serves to develop systemic approaches to enhancing our policies, practices, programs and the teaching and learning process. To this end, the EDC aims to ensure equitable opportunities and support for each and every student. Further, the EDC applies a real-time equity lens to closely examine Board policies and identify impact for opportunities and barriers. For more information about the Equity and Diversity Council, or ways to get involved, please contact: Roszena Haskins, Director of Equity Advancement at 860-561-6900 or roszena_haskins@whps.org.
