Williamson County Schools TN diversity consultants share report

Diversity and inclusion consulting firm Fostering Healthy Solutions has completed a report on Williamson County Schools.

The consulting team was hired in February by WCS after approval by the school board and tasked with creating recommendations on an eventual districtwide cultural strategy plan. The plan is an effort to create a safer environment for students of all identities across the district.

Superintendent Jason Golden told the school board at its work session Thursday that this is the first time the district has had such data in one spot.

“We’re not trying to create a flash, we’re trying to make sure we grow and help these students feel safe,” he said. “We’re going to be very intentional and very deliberate.”

FHS’s report identifies WCS’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as gaps and opportunities in its operations.
