Equity in a school building doesn’t just happen, it is purposefully cultivated. Hear from school leaders on their methods to curate opportunities for all their students. In the wake of COVID they will share how the shift to remote learning not only highlighted inequitable truths but also provided a chance to even the playing field. Learn about family engagement tactics, diverse recruiting strategies that mirror local communities, and how students’ needs are met where they are.
