Implementing Ethnic Studies

October 2021–May 2022

Professional Learning

Equity Centered Master Scheduling for Site Leaders

October 2021

Leaders will engage in an equity audit of their community in order to understand ways to reimagine scheduling decisions that lead to unintended outcomes; they will pinpoint hidden inequities, and then begin to address those findings. We will touch on various scheduling-related topics, including building a strong scheduling team, having hard conversations with stakeholders, and putting in place an iterative process to help ensure that scheduling decisions are strongly rooted in equitable outcomes for all students looking forward to future years.

Creating the Conditions for All Students to Thrive: Designing School Culture in Response to a Year of Stress and Isolation

September 2021–May 2022

Seneca's Unconditional Education model prepares school leaders to understand and establish systems to address the ways in which trauma, poverty, institutionalized racism, experiences in foster care, and emotional and learning disabilities impact students in their classrooms and the wider school community.

African American Male Leaders Professional Learning Group

September 2021–December 2021
