Face-to-Face format

This opportunity is not another training but rather a deep exploration of issues and equity through the lens of race with the goal of supporting leaders to create policies that enact equity for all teachers and students.  This professional learning series consists of 3 all-day sessions where teams will be asked to examine the roots of racism as well as the current-day manifestations in government and education policy and practice.  The sessions will be facilitated by The Gemini Group, LLC, which is a Colorado based organization dedicated to helping groups achieve not only a greater understanding of the foundation and dynamics of racial equity, but more importantly how to implement equity to reduce disparities in communities and improve outcomes for all residents.

Districts are asked to apply to participate; there is no cost to districts that are selected.  Applicants must submit a completed online application form, which includes uploading a completed Team Contact Sheet and Response Sheet by Friday, January 3, 2020.  Districts must create a team who will attend all 3 sessions and who will be able to make a difference in the creation and operationalization of district policy.  More information follows:
