The Diversity & Inclusion program is an extension of the Wylie Way philosophy. It focuses on bringing people together and providing a more supportive environment for everyone in our school community. The Wylie Way is a movement in our schools that fosters responsible, caring, and ethical young people through an emphasis on the core values of the Wylie ISD community. The core values are fundamental beliefs of the Wylie Independent School District. They are the guiding beliefs that dictate the behavior and actions of our employees and students.
- Respect and Responsibility
- Caring and Giving
- Grit and Preparation
- Gratitude and Celebration
WHAT IS OUR VISION?
The vision of the D&I Program is to enhance an environment where diversity is leveraged as a strength and where ALL of our educators, students, and families have a true sense of belonging, where they feel valued for the uniqueness that they bring, and where they feel safe to do their best work.
WHAT IS DIVERSITY?
Diversity is the variety that makes up our school community, including but not limited to someone’s race, color, religion, gender, disability, or age. Our latest district demographics can be found on our District Statistics dashboard.
WHAT IS INCLUSION?
Inclusion is creating a climate and culture where every person has a sense of belonging, a place where they feel valued for the uniqueness that they bring, and a place where they feel safe to do their best work.
