Principal Equity Teams Collaborate to Address Problems of Practice and Advance Equity and Excellence
Description: In this session, assistant professor Elizabeth Leisy Stosich, Ed.D., describes her research on a district’s efforts to involve all principals in addressing critical equity issues. Specifically, the district established principal teams to address three issues: strengthening culturally responsive-sustaining education (CR-SE), strengthening social emotional learning (SEL), and reducing chronic absenteeism. Superintendent Vaughan and Ms. Coleman will describe their experience designing, leading, and participating in these groups and the implications for other districts seeking to support equity-focused leadership.
