Each and Every Student
The Wissahickon School District presents the Equity Dashboard, a data-driven and transparent look at sixteen key equity and achievement measures that form the basis of our continued commitment for two areas of focus.
- To identify and frame any and all gaps that may exist in our district; and
- To work hard to close those gaps to the best of our ability.
Gaps in specific equity and/or achievement measures combine to create a bigger, broader and more comprehensive Opportunity Gap that can have lifelong adverse impact on students. Our goal is to identify, measure, and work to eliminate all of these gaps resulting in equal opportunity for each and every Wissahickon Student.
K-5 Capacity and Enrollment
The district began evaluating K-5 capacity and challenges (e.g. new attendance boundaries, construction, etc.) in January 2019. Phase I, began in 2019, addressed capacity and enrollment issues at Stony Creek Elementary, which included new and renovated facilities at the school. Phase II, beginning in 2022, addresses capacity and enrollment issues at Blue Bell Elementary.
School Start and End Times: Wiss Well-being
In the 2021-2022 school year, the District and Board began the process of examining school start and end times, including staff and community stakeholder conversations to invite feedback. The intent is to make any necessary changes, if any, and implement new start times at the beginning of the 2024-2025 school year.
