Educator Engagement

Does your school or district want support to improve?

Partner with The Education Trust–West to increase equity, opportunity, and success for students.
School districts and county offices of education have a critical role in ensuring educational equity. ETW’s tools, services, and grounding in the research on best practices help schools, districts, and county offices of education transform their policies, practices, and systems to create equitable access to rigorous and relevant coursework while providing the learning environment and support students need to thrive. ETW’s partnerships are grounded in the understanding that building more equitable school systems requires an inclusive process in which stakeholders from across the school community are authentically involved and contribute to identifying and implementing solutions.

Testimonials from Participants

Who We Worked With

What Our District Leaders are Saying

 The discussion and  thoughtfulness of all   participants in the process.   Facilitators did a great job of   moving us forward.  

 The open nature of our   discussions, in addressing the   strengths, but especially the   struggles of our school and   district was great. 

 I loved all the conversations. It   was such meaty stuff. Loved   [the] equity toolkit.
