Equitable Community Engagement
Equitable community engagement—an ongoing, two-way process of building relationships, working collaboratively to support all students, and sharing power—can result in transformative benefits for schools and their school communities. Based on our experience supporting school communities working collaboratively for more equitable, rigorous, and personalized education systems that prepare every student for college, careers, and global citizenship, we have created a virtual workshop for educators, families, students, and other members of a school community to develop a deeper understanding of equitable community engagement. Participants will explore strategies that support a successful effort.
This event is designed for varied stakeholders within the school or district community. Participants may comprise administrators, teachers, students, families members, and community members.
At the Great Schools Partnership, our goal is to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to make progress in your school, district, or community. As a participant, you will:
|Equitable Community Engagement|
|Welcome and Review Agenda|
|The Case for Community Engagement (understanding the connection between equity and community engagement)|
|Develop a deeper understanding of structures that enable shared power and decision making, and rationale for why community engagement needs to be centered in the life of a school-community|
|Take your “equity pulse”|
