Leading Change for Educational Equity 2 (LCEE2) is designed as a follow-up to the Leading Change for Educational Equity training that introduced school teams to the four AVID Schoolwide Domains. Partners can select up to four days of training focusing on the Domains (Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture) for their LCEE2 professional learning experience. This offering explores Culture.
Prerequisite: This learning experience is designed for people who have attended Leading Change for Educational Equity (LCEE) or Leadership for College and Career Readiness (LCR).
Leading Change for Educational Equity 2: Culture emphasizes that a culture grounded in equity, access, and opportunity is foundational for preparing all students to be college and career ready and that culture is instrumental in establishing aligned and interdependent systems, ensuring mission- and vision-driven leadership, and fostering a rigorous instructional framework so that all students are on the path to college and career readiness.
Participants will learn strategies to confront personal biases and actively seek out and eliminate barriers that limit students’ access and opportunities. They will also utilize tools and resources to effectively create a plan for sustaining a culture that allows students to achieve their college and career goals.
- Examine implicit and explicit personal biases that may hinder a culture of college and career readiness for all students.
- Recognize existing opportunity gaps and identify ways to break down barriers to ensure students have what they need to be college and career ready.
- Leverage the Law of Diffusion to build trust among all stakeholders and establish a culture of shared beliefs and values focused on equity for all students.
- Develop actionable steps for creating and sustaining a culture grounded in equitable practices that provide access and opportunity for all students and understand that culture is foundational for other Domains to impact college and career readiness for all students.
