Ambassadors for Equitable and Inclusive Practice
This fall, ESE will partner with the Massachusetts Organization of Educational Collaboratives and both principals' associations to coordinate and conduct visits between principals and equitable and inclusive practice ambassadors. The Department's partnership with the ambassadors is a component of the Massachusetts State Equity Plan to promote equitable access to excellent educators for all students.
The team of ambassadors is composed of current and former principals, teachers, and other educational leaders, and they will share resources and strategies to strengthen instruction. For example, ambassadors will share information about a new grant designed to support innovative partnerships between districts and educator preparation organizations, a district-created interactive planner that helps districts assess and plan for distributing leadership, and information about a free online course on the foundations for inclusive practice.
Schools can schedule an ambassador visit via this online form and can learn more about the program by contacting the executive director of their local educational collaborative.
