Dr. Ann Levett and Dr. Christine Johns will share their insights and best practices on K-12 equity issues as they relate to ensuring all students are career and college ready. Preparing all students to graduate career ready and college prepared requires that there is ample access to high-level learning for ALL students.

In this edWebinar, Dr. Levett and Dr. Johns will discuss these essential questions:
What groups of students may be over- or underrepresented in particular career technical programs (i.e. STEM related, business, entrepreneurship, etc.)?
What groups of students may be over- or underrepresented in career technical internship and apprenticeship programs?
How can districts address these differences with regard to procedures, policies, and goals?
What factors may be preventing students of different ethnicities, income levels, or ability levels from actively participating and finding success in these programs?
Participants will receive a presentation from two national leaders who are making a difference in student success with career and college readiness.

This presentation will be of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
