Equity and Diversity Initiatives in Our Schools
Webster CSD believes in creating a culture in our schools that is welcoming and engaging for all students and staff. Our faculties are engaged in an ongoing process of professional learning and personal reflection, with the aim to build a more inclusive curriculum and instruction that empowers diverse perspectives.
Students are encouraged to celebrate their authentic selves, both in their classrooms and through extracurricular activities. Webster offers a variety of clubs designed to provide students of differing backgrounds safe places to build community and advocate for change. The DREAM club, International Club, and the Gay/Straight Alliance are examples that our schools offer.
Equity and Diversity Initiatives in Our Community
Webster CSD is committed to creating a “One Webster” community that is anchored in an equity mindset. We strive to build systems that celebrate our community’s diversity as a source of strength and work to ensure that each of the stakeholders feel as if they are truly part of the “One”.
Families Igniting Racial Equity (F.I.R.E.) is a vibrant, parent-led organization whose mission is to build a racially, socially, and economically-just community. The group includes members throughout our district - parents, teachers, administrators, board of education members - allies all passionate about building a “One Webster” community that challenges the status quo, creates opportunities for productive crucial conversations, acknowledges historical inequities, and supports individual and group agency for change.
