Equity and Diversity Council (EDC)

 

West Hartford Public Schools continues to see steady changes in our racial, ethnic and socio-economic demographics and embraces the richness that diversity brings. The Equity and Diversity Council (EDC) currently exists as a staff advisory committee that seeks to promote equity, advance diversity, and foster inclusiveness, acceptance, mutual respect and support, civility and non-discrimination across all areas of our district’s programs and services.

 

The work of the EDC is aligned with the WHPS’ mission and vision for Clear Paths. Bright Futures. No Limits. 


The purpose of the Equity and Diversity Council (EDC) is to support and sustain a diverse educational community that is inclusive and equitable by examining, developing, and improving systemic practices, programs, and policies.  

 

The EDC Subcommittees are: 

  • Ethnic Affairs Committee

  • LGBTQ Advisory

  • Advancing Student Achievement & Educator Capacity-building

  • Open Choice Enhancement

  • Family Engagement
