The challenges of the past year have increased the disparities in education around equity and access. As education leaders plan for the new normal next school year, has your district been able to pivot and create a curriculum that provides for academic rigor? Are your teachers ready to cultivate genuine relevance and relationships?

Closing equity and access gaps in the U.S. depends on school and district leaders who can build the right culture, identify the right intervention and instructional program strategies, and provide the right professional learning. Watch Dr. Amanda Patterson and Garth Harries discuss the key challenges and proven tactical solutions to help district leaders accelerate through recent learning loss to close longstanding instructional disparities.

In recorded this edWebinar, district leaders are:

  • Introduced to leadership planning frameworks that support ongoing improvement and coherence
  • Provided with information about intervention and supplemental resources that can be used to help plan and redesign instructional programs
  • Guided on ways to build educator professional growth into regular rhythms of schools, building from existing strengths while confronting the new normal facing teachers

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, and curriculum, Title I, special education, and ELL directors.
