“I’d encourage everyone in our community to see this as a ‘teachable moment’ for our children and for ourselves. As parents, we may struggle with how to have a conversation about race with our children, but I’ve seen that inequity persist when we do not have this necessary conversation.” - WCSD Superintendent Marie Morgan.
At WCEF, we are guided by the principle that each and every student in our community deserves the best possible education. As an organization, as educators, and as parents and caregivers, we feel deeply connected to everyone in our community. We stand together with our partner districts and their efforts to create a more equitable, compassionate, empathetic, and loving community.
For a list of resources from our partner districts on how to talk to your child about race, please visit www.wcefk12.org/resources.
We are stronger together.
WCEF was created by parents in the 1980s when our community was faced with drastic budget cuts, the same situation we are in today due to consistent underfunding and COVID-19. Donations to WCEF ensure all students in the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School receive a quality education and graduate with confidence.
