Equity and Culturally Responsive Practices for Building Leaders

Ensuring equitable practices are embedded throughout instruction and school operations is essential for Title I schools with diverse populations, high student populations experiencing poverty, and challenges with students connecting to and excelling academically. School leaders must make culturally responsive practices (CRP) a priority. In order to prioritize CRP, school faculty and staff members must first be presented opportunities for self-examination and analysis that informs and promotes individual growth. When staff members are able to identify their own ideals and understanding of race, implicit biases, and equity, opportunities for growth are inevitable. Participants will be provided content to promote a deeper understanding of race, implicit bias and privilege on which to build a basis for culturally responsive practices. School leaders will be equipped with strategies to promote with faculty and staff to implement effective culturally responsive practices.
