Who We Are

  • What does "Equity" in Education mean? 

    Educational Equity is defined as making decisions strategically based upon the principles of fairness, which includes providing a variety of educational resources, models, programs and strategies according to student needs that may not be the same for every student or school with the intention of leading to equality of academic outcomes

    Vision of Wichita Public Schools Department of Equity, Diversity, and Accountability:

    The WPS Department of Equity, Diversity, and Accountability envisions a future in which students' outcomes are not predicted by their social factors or challenges. WPS is committed to ensuring equitable and fair educational opportunities for all students by allocating resources and providing diverse learning opportunities. 

    Our Mission Statement:

    Wichita Public Schools will provide equitable access to a high standard of educational success for all students with the intention of closing achievement gaps, opportunity gaps, belonging gaps, and graduation gaps, particularly for student groups with the greatest academic and behavior needs.
