A Process for Advancing Inclusive District Initiatives

  • Improve academic, social-emotional, and developmental outcomes for historically marginalized student groups.
  • Address and eliminate unproductive or harmful practices that impede transformational change.
  • Learn approaches and gain tools for engaging teachers, students, parents, and other stakeholders in implementation adoptions.
  • Cultivate school and district cultures that prioritize belonging and inclusion.
  • Utilize research, scenarios, action items, and reproducible handouts to develop and implement organizational strategies that equitably support diverse groups of students and families.
