1. providing each student with what he or she needs to be successful

The Equity Through Engagement Series of School Board presentations provides information to the Board and the community about the strategies and support systems WJCC is using to address equity. In recent years, WJCC has experienced an increase in economically disadvantaged students and English Language Learners. Additionally, the complexity of meeting the needs of students with disabilities, the under-representation of minority students in advanced classes and a disproportionality in discipline referrals are three challenges for WJCC.

Superintendent’s Taskforce

This taskforce was created to identify and address equity issues within WJCC Public Schools. The purpose of the taskforce is to implement supports and strategies to ensure all students have what they need to be successful in WJCC schools.

The taskforce meets monthly and assists with the planning and delivery of presentations in the Equity Through Engagement series.
