As part of last year’s Keeping Every Door Open (KEDO) policy Action Team, Partners, with the support of The Education Trust-West, worked together to help 3 school districts (Novato Unified School District, San Rafael City Schools, and SUSD) conduct Equity Audits and develop Blueprints for Action toward closing College Readiness equity gaps.
Having completed the work with The Education-Trust West, District’s have now institutionalized many of the Blueprint recommendations by formally adopting them as part of their 2021-2024 LCAP plans. Many of the elements that were adopted were action items that districts shared in common – such as amending graduation requirements to align with UC/CSU requirements, standards based grading, project based learning, ethnic studies, multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS), and shared data systems. Partners will now move forward with collaborative implementation approaches through their work together in the Future Ready Initiative.
This is a bright spot example of how Partners are achieving collective impact by taking truly transformative steps to shift the system and embed equity in structures (LCAPs) and sustainable funding systems (District Budgets).
