Abstract

The Equity Implemented Partnership leverages both the expertise of social science and education policy research at a university, and the practitioner knowledge and expertise found in the District and its schools, to more effectively address persistent inequities in the District. The key focus of the Partnership is student experiences of school climate. The Equity Implemented Partnership uses annual student climate surveys as needs assessments to inform equity programming and policies. Throughout the Partnership, the team has produced three key area policy briefs, convened a task force, collected data from students and teachers, and evaluated equity programming. The Partnership’s goal of achieving equity in student experiences is also aligned with the District’s goals and interest in focusing on student experiences of school climate as a crucial factor impacting student outcomes, and in creating responsible, socially- and civically-competent citizens.
