Addressing Beliefs to Create Equitable Systems for Currently Marginalized Students

Wednesday February 7, 2024
2:45 - 3:45 PM
Oregon Ballroom 202

This panel comprises three technical assistance providers and a district Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. It will focus on spotlighting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) concerning English Language Learners (ELLs), Students with Disabilities (SWDs), and Racial Equity. In the field of education, with a growing emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, it is vital to support educational entities in ensuring equitable outcomes for all students, including those from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds, ELLs, and SWDs. Academic data consistently reveal opportunity gaps and disparate behavioral outcomes between these students and their white peers (NAEP, 2019), along with disproportionate behavior outcomes for students of color (Office of Civil Rights, 2018). To address these disparities, student-centered professional development, technical assistance, and policy reviews centered around racial equity are crucial steps toward eradicating such concerning outcomes.
