At Wyoming City Schools, we are working to foster a sense of Belonging for students, staff members, and families.
What We Do:
In our classrooms:
Wyoming City Schools teaches a thorough, accurate, and fact-based history education that aligns with Ohio’s Learning Standards for Social Studies.
In Wyoming City Schools, we teach that racism and discrimination are wrong.
- Wyoming students learn to value, recognize, and respect the humanity and dignity of every person.
With staff and community members:
We educate our staff on how to build a climate of belonging for our students, staff and families through our One Degree Shift discussions.
We examine our processes and practices for opportunities to build inclusion and equity in our Belonging & Inclusion Collaborative.
We share information about this work during Belonging Committee meetings and through Belonging Committee reports at Board of Education meetings.
We gather feedback from our students and carry out these actions with the assistance of our part-time Equity Coordinator.
Why We Do It:
We are proud of the diversity of our student body and believe it’s imperative we give our students learning environments where their identities and voices are affirmed, valued, and represented.
Rooted in our Climate and Culture goal area, we are working to create a school community culture where all members feel connected and engaged. We are building a culture where all members feel a true sense of belonging.
This work helps to support our students today, while also preparing them for their future in an ever-changing world.
Opportunity for More Information:
