Goals of DEI Committee:

  • Create a safe space for students and families in our BHS to discuss experiences and resources
  • Provide and promote activities and enrichment experiences that elevate students and school families in our community, focusing on the information and skills necessary to improve equity
  • Facilitate direct access to school administration, allowing better communication between families and school administration
  • Advocate for and amplify diverse voices in the school community

At the January PTSA meeting, the Ballard PTSA adopted a resolution affirming the information in WSPTA Resolution 2.26, “Dismantling Institutional and Systemic Racism” to view visit the WSPTA Website > Resolutions > Child Safety and Protection tab. This will guide our work and inform the DEI Committee’s future goals.
