Welcome to the WSSD Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) webpage.
In June 2020, the Wallingford-Swarthmore School Board established a School Board DEI Subcommittee and appointed Board Members Jerry Ballas, Michele Downie, David Grande, and Kelly Wachtman to it.
In June 2020, the WSSD Community-Wide Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Action Committee was established. There was a tremendous response and we are so thankful to all that expressed their interest in joining. The committee members were selected to represent the diversity of our community across race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and religion, as well as our various schools and the geographical communities we serve. The committee is comprised of WSSD parents and guardians, current and former students, community members, teachers, and administrators.
The DEI Action Committee is excited and eager to get started, and they held their initial meeting on Wednesday, July 22.
