This annual professional development opportunity supports state, regional, district, and school teams to move from a deficit-based system to one that is based on proactive, Integrated, and Comprehensive Services (ICS)™. Participants will affirm their commitment to learning to lead for equity and social justice across rural, urban, and suburban districts. Teams will engage in a deep equity analysis of their school, district, region, or state and complete an action plan and next steps to increase achievement of all students regardless of race, ability, language, income, sexual identity, gender, and their intersections.
Schools and districts who have completed the Institute in previous years and whom are deeply engaged in the work will help facilitate content and share their achievements and challenges. Participants will network and collaborate, and in so doing, develop an on-going community of support and accountability beyond the event.
Registration cost includes all materials and refreshments throughout the week.
Names of participants are not required to register a group. Secure your spots now and submit names of attendees later.
