Partnering with Our Community

In the Service of Equity

Grant-Supported Invitation for Proposals and Community Collaboration

WHPS Inspires Equity

Thanks to the support of the Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools, the WHPS Office of Equity Advancement is seeking to collaborate with our educators and community partners on student engagement projects that explore and promote racial equity and social justice problems and solutions of the local community. Projects should allow students to further appreciate collaboration across diversity, apply critical thinking and serve as cultural agents of positive change. Project ideas include:


  • curricula that best supports equity and anti-racism education in West Hartford Public Schools.

  • programs that target racial justice and efforts to end discrimination.

  • projects, instructional/curricular materials and collections focused on teaching racial diversity, justice and cultural competency to students

  • Actively engages students and inspires them to obtain deeper knowledge of ways to promote a more equitable, inclusive and just community
