Tiered Service Delivery Framework
Great Lakes Equity Center’s and Midwest and Plains Equity Assistance Center's approach to resource and service delivery is grounded in a multi-tiered framework of technical assistance. Our goal is to engage in well-defined, content-rich technical assistance such that knowledge and expertise are shared in a way that results in transformative systemic change, as well as personal reflection and growth.
We offer a variety of tools, publications, and resources to a broad public audience.
The Great Lakes Equity Center brings together role-alike stakeholders across district and state boundaries, supports peer-to-peer mentoring, and offers opportunities to share information quickly across individuals focused on similar problems of practice.
We engage in sustained partnerships of transformative professional learning and improvement grounded in examination of local data and historical contexts and action-research case studies that bring practitioners and researchers together in inquiry. These partnerships are entered into through development of a formalized agreement with agency leadership, and include the development of a memorandum of understanding detailing the proposed project scope, timeline, and responsibilities of both the requesting agency and the Great Lakes Equity Center.
