Between the inequities illuminated by COVID-19 and unprecedented calls to end racial injustice, now is a rare “breakthrough” moment for leaders to dismantle inequitable systems that for generations have harmed our marginalized students. Now is the time for Breakthrough Leadership. Join Alan Blankstein, Marcus Newsome, and fellow leaders from across North America as they describe how administrators can leverage crises to achieve more equitable and healthy outcomes for our children and society.
Step by step, the presenters will describe how to:
• Create and sustain Equitable Learning Communities (ELCs) that are grounded in relational trust
• Establish comprehensive systems to ensure that all students thrive
• Implement cutting-edge principles of effective curriculum, instruction, and assessment including culturally responsive teaching, trauma-informed practice, and blended learning
• Meaningfully engage families and their community in hard conversations that propel our society forward
