Join us for a virtual conversation at 6:30 pm with WPS families & caregivers with Dr. Kalise Wornum Tuesday, May 17th, via Zoom.  See flyer for all details.

Participants will have an opportunity to raise questions and discuss challenges in real-time. This session will focus on modern day racism. Dr. Wornum has designed the session to provide families with information about our equity work in the Watertown Public Schools and to help parents and caregivers navigate difficult conversations around race and bias.  Please join whether you are able to participate actively or just want to listen in.

Dr. Kalise Wornum is an Educational Consultant at KW Diversity Inc. Earlier in her career, she served as the METCO Director in the Wellesley Public Schools. As part of the equity work in WPS, Dr. Wornum has collaborated with the WPS Leadership Team in providing resources and training to become Culturally Proficient Leaders, and she delivered this year's keynote speech to all WPS staff on Opening Day, September 1. This work moves WPS towards achieving its mission of preparing all students for life by engaging them in a challenging and meaningful education within an inclusive, diverse community.
