Session III: Thursday, August 20, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed existing racial, economic, and social structural inequities in communities and school districts.  The most effective way to address these inequities is through collective leadership genuinely engaging students, parents, and the community in decision-making processes.  Drawing from the study, Recasting Families and Communities as Co-Designers of Education in Tumultuous Times (2019), participants will engage with the Community Design Collaborative Model.  The model includes three strategies: (1) Build and set the co-design table (2) Engage in co-design (3) Sustain co-design.  Over the course of three-hour long sessions, participants will examine their school and district policies and practices, share current successes, challenges and develop plans for implementing Co-design practices.  Additional resources to support our work will include NYSED's School Comprehensive Education Plan (SCEP) Inequity Review Self-Assessment, NYSED's Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework, and the Leadership for Equity Assessment & Development (LEAD) Tool.
