Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools: New Strategies for Our New Era

Tuesday February 9, 2021
12:45 - 1:45 PM
Lecture 5

Drawing from their recently released study Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools, (ASCD,2020), the authors will share their exploration into 12 diverse, high-performing, high-poverty schools. Revealing new insights for how high poverty schools become and remain high-performing, participants will explore the importance of committing to equity, as well as strategies for developing collective efficacy, integrating SEL into school-wide processes and classroom practices and supporting children who have experienced trauma. As the unprecedented impact of school closures globally clearly revealed the inequities in our society and in our schools, perhaps more than ever, we are all called upon to question our "old normal." By necessity, leaders in these schools have had to question the "old normal" in order to "beat the odds." This presentation will support participants in doing the same.
