    After several years of work with individual schools at more than 24 school sites, the Office of Equity has begun an intentional shift that will forge the path towards greater efficacy and deeper support for school communities using a regional approach: Network Community Improvement Science. Utilizing tests of change from BELE Network partner tools, we have documented initiatives with successful impact data and also identified areas within our own system that need increased impact data.


    Research on our work has revealed positive measurable change in areas including culturally responsive pedagogy, classroom leadership, community engagement, strong curriculum, and academic supports. We are confident this learning can be used to catalyze deeper investment in high-need schools by aligning our family empowerment, student engagement, targeted strategies, and antiracism and equity learning initiatives to transform outcomes and opportunities for students.
