AASA Leading for Equity - Equity-Based Strategic Planning – A Commitment to Racial and Educational Justice
Show Notes

This edWeb podcast is hosted by AASA, The School Superintendents Association.
The webinar recording can be accessed here.

In this edWeb podcast, AASA’s 2021 National Superintendent of the Year and Northshore School District Superintendent, Dr. Michelle Reid, shares how an equity-based strategic plan is the foundation on which an entire school district—students, staff, families, school board, volunteers and community partners—continues to develop its work, curricula, professional development, and plans for the future. 

Joining Dr. Reid to discuss how the strategic plan holds the Northshore School District community accountable in its commitment to racial and educational justice are Ayva Thomas, Assistant Director of Northshore’s Racial and Educational Justice Department, Dr. Srinivas Khedam, Assistant Principal and Asian Indian Coordinator, and Cathi Davis, Principal at Northshore’s Ruby Bridges Elementary School. Listeners learn Northshore’s approach to changing hearts and changing minds as they’ve continued to bring the commitment to racial and educational justice off the page even during COVID-19. The panel discusses an organized and strategic approach, including a school board policy, an equity framework, professional development, and engagement in every school and department in the district. 

This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
