The WSSDA Board of Directors has spent the last six months working on an equity statement to guide WSSDA’s work. In February the WSSDA Board unanimously approved the following statement:
“Equity is foundational to the work of WSSDA. Educational equity can only exist when a student’s level of opportunity and achievement cannot be predicted based on race, characteristics, or circumstances. Therefore, we must identify and eliminate any discriminatory beliefs, practices, and prejudices within our state’s public education system.”
