Equity Institute: Leading for Equitable Classrooms
Housed at the Wadsworth Atheneum, this two-day institute is offered in proximity to powerful and moving collections from both the Wadsworth and the Amistad Center for Arts and Culture. Utilizing these poignant images as backdrop and fodder, we launch deep conversations and exercises aimed at examining the impact of racism, privilege, and bias on learning and our educational systems. Over these two days, district teams engage in strategic planning for equitable access, experiences, and positive outcomes for all students.
Upcoming dates: October 2019

Easily, the most engaging and important PD I have ever attended!
The entire workshop was useful – start to finish. I had no prior experience with Instructional Rounds, and this workshop was super informative and very engaging. I really like how it was laid out – the first day of learning in the morning and practicing, and then going live the next day. I really enjoyed the discussions within our groups. I enjoyed it all.
