Equity Leaders Institutes are transformative two-day learning experiences intended to increase participants’ capacities to advance and sustain equitable practices in teaching and learning. To allow for in-depth reflection and discourse among participants, and more individualized support for planning attendance for the institute will be capped at 60 people.

Creating Caring School Communities: Decolonizing Harmful Practices, Disrupting Push Out, & Advancing Liberation in Our Schools

The topic of this year's Institute is about re-establishing schools as caring communities by dismantling institutionalized practices that interrupt successful schooling experiences for historically marginalized populations and supporting the development of a framework to promote success for all students.

 

Following this two-day intensive learning experience, you will be able to:

  • Expand and examine their understandings of policies, practices, and structures that disenfranchise students from their school community. 
  • Critique improvement initiatives that localize school “problems” within students and educators; thus ignoring the structural oppressions that continue to marginalize non-dominant communities (i.e. people of Color, individuals with dis/abilities, LBGTQ+ people, women, and people living in disinvested neighborhoods, etc.). 
  • State practices and characteristics of caring school communities.
  • Initiate planning towards implementation of practices to increase capacity of school leaders in the creation of liberating and caring school communities.
