This guide provides useful information and resources to support districts in developing and sustaining a workforce that is diverse, culturally responsive, well-prepared, and committed to continuous improvement, so that all students have equitable access to effective educators.
The teachers and administrators in front of our students have great potential for disrupting patterns of inequity in our society, and hiring, assignment, support and development systems shape so much of how these educators enter, engage and thrive in this endeavor. It is our hope that the policy updates, considerations and resources provided in this guide will support you in navigating these systems.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, feedback, or for additional support and partnership around any of the practices and resources included in this guide.
