Dr. Leila Nuland, Managing Director of K-12 Research Team at Hanover Research, will present best practices on the importance of equity audits and share frameworks districts can use to implement equity agendas that bring about real change. Current data trends will be shared. Nationally recognized school leaders, Dr. Daryl Camp, Superintendent of San Lorenzo Unified School District, (San Lorenzo, CA), and Dr. Gregory Hutchings, Superintendent of Alexandria City Public Schools (Alexandria, VA), will share examples of how their districts are putting research into action.

Essential questions include:
To what extent is the district offering a diverse and inclusive environment?
To what extent do the district’s administrative and fiscal policies and practices ensure an equitable work and learning environment?
To what extent do the district’s resource practices and policies establish an equitable and inclusive work and learning environment?
To what extent do the district’s curriculum and instruction policies and practices cultivate an equitable work and learning environment?
In what ways can the district support changes to school and classroom curricula and practices?

Participants will learn about strategies to address systemic disparities and inequities in order to benefit all students.
