Leading Change for Educational Equity is designed to empower site- and district-based leaders to employ a systemic approach to college and career readiness through the implementation of AVID Schoolwide. For an optimal learning experience, attending with a team of at least 3 is highly recommended.

Participants will explore a defined leadership theory of action that addresses educator beliefs and behaviors and creates campuswide conditions to ensure college and career readiness for all. In doing so, they will understand how to create a strong infrastructure to support AVID Schoolwide implementation and sustainability.

Participants will return to their sites equipped to identify specific strategies to accomplish, anticipate, and troubleshoot potential obstacles/barriers and implement lasting change in support of college and career readiness for all students.

Participants will engage in both synchronous and semi-synchronous learning. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
