The goal of WPACS is to create a school community that reflects the diversity of the city of the Inglewood and the Inglewood Unified School District. WPACS recruits students from a range of ethnic, linguistic, socioeconomic and racial populations. The school commits itself to quantifiable efforts designed to show its commitment to a diverse student body. WPACS does not discriminate on the basis of characteristics such as disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that is contained in the definition of hate crimes. Recruitment strategies will include but are not be limited to:
- the design and distribution of outreach and informational materials to appeal to the various racial and ethnic groups within the District including contact with newsprint agencies that target the community;
- the development of outreach materials in other languages to reach parents who are not English speakers;
- outreach to community groups, agencies and other organizations that have direct contact with the racial and ethnic communities in the District;
WPACS administration reviews student demographic data on a regular basis to ensure the school is meeting its commitment to a racial and ethnic balance and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees, as necessary, regarding adjustment of the above recruitment strategies.
