Learn how Chief Leschi Schools, a K-12 school serving 100% Indigenous students, raised their graduation rate from 75% to 92% while the rest of the nation experienced learning losses due to the pandemic! This presentation addresses key concepts and foundations of school improvement in grades K-12, with a focus on closing achievement gaps. Strategies address learning loss and infrastructure to achieve intersecting growth. By combining the Indigenous Culture with rigorous academic pathways, we prepare our students to "Walk Successfully in Two Worlds." Discover how they used innovative practices to work alongside policy makers to create equity in learning.
