WSSD EQUITY AUDIT
PUROSE OF AN EQUITY AUDIT:
Addressing school district inequities presents districts not only with a challenge, but also an opportunity to create a truly diverse and inclusive environment for teaching and learning. Equity audits can help educators understand the inequities that exist in their district and schools and inform development of the policies and practices needed to address them.
