WPS Statement on Equity and Equality
Wildwood Public Schools have been and will always be committed to issues of equity and equality. This commitment is made even more relevant as the nation has united in protest over the past few days, and will fuel and inspire our efforts as we continue in pursuit of this goal until it is met.
Our work toward this goal is well documented. It can be found in our testimony regarding the pipeline issues that negatively impact the preparation of minority teaching candidates, the negative impacts of standardized assessments and high school graduation, and the negative effects of funding inequities on our students.
We have never just talked the talk, but have returned to the district to develop programs that address the issues that we travel to Trenton to call into question. Some evidence of this work includes the following:
Our actions and commitment to the work speak for themselves. We feel that all of our efforts and an explanation of what we are advocating for needs to be a living resource on our website, as we need a forum to highlight our efforts, and it can now be found on the designated page known as “Equity and Advocacy”. As stated earlier, we will continue the pursuit of equity and equality for our students until the goal is met as our students deserve nothing less.

The mission of the Wildwood School District is to meet the varied needs of our culturally and economically diverse student population so that all students are provided with the opportunity to maximize their education and career potential through the acquisition of the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards and involvement in co-curricular activities, giving them the necessary skills to prepare for their roles as productive global citizens in the 21st century. The Wildwood School District is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment. The district does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, employment policies, and other district-administered programs and activities.
