Racial Literacy

The Westfield Public School District, in partnership with the Westfield Education Fund, unveiled an important initiative in September 2020 aimed at improving discussions of race in classrooms across the district.

Thanks to a generous WEF grant, Westfield Public Schools has expanded its classroom libraries with additional books and other materials that provide a richer and more diverse experience surrounding themes of inclusiveness, diversity, fairness, and equality,

Additionally, the WEF funding provided a series of professional development sessions to provide educators with culturally responsive teaching strategies aimed at enhancing student engagement and creating a respectful community of learners.
