The Westwood Public Schools is aligned with the commitments our whole community has made, as laid out in the Select Board Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

The Town of Westwood strives to be, for all residents and community members, a safe place where one is free from discrimination and able to grow into the best, most authentic version of oneself, and where we are committed to continuously learning and evolving through our connections to and mutual respect for each other and our community.

We celebrate the diverse backgrounds and identities inside our schools and in the broader community, and develop programs, resources, and services that help everyone learn, grow, and feel that they belong. The Department of Equity, Integration, and Community Partnerships helps students, families, and faculty to access what the district has to offer. 

We believe that equity work is embedded in every aspect of the school district. We pay particular attention to these four areas:

Curriculum and instruction: students see their cultures and identities in what they learn, and also learn about and value others’ cultures and identities. Culture and climate: every school building fosters a caring learning environment where people can be themselves.

Talent recruitment, retention, and development: educators and staff bring broad and representative backgrounds to our community, build the skills they need to excel, and thrive in their workplace. 

Family and community partnerships: the diverse institutions, opportunities, and resources within Westwood and the surrounding area are connected to our schools to spark curiosity, expand horizons, and bring communities together.
