Webinar—Accelerating Learning: Equity-Centered Strategies to Support Students

Hosted by the AASA, The School Superintendents Association and Learning Policy Institute

Tuesday, June 1, 2021
12 p.m. – 1 p.m. ET

How can school districts advance equity and opportunity in partnership with students, teachers, and families? Panelists will discuss strategies for how to evaluate existing district work on diversity, equity, and inclusion through intentional conversations and strategies. Among the strategies that will be discussed: allocating resources equitably, providing students access to deeper learning, and supporting social and emotional learning, as set forth in LPI’s Districts Advancing Racial Equity (DARE) Tool. This webinar is the final one in a five-part series focused on strategies to accelerate student learning and support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
