Teachers and instructional coaches access equity focused professional learning and resources that support evidence-based instructional practices and implementation for both academics and behavior.

Professional Learning for Instructional Staff is grounded in EQUITY

Educational equity means that every student has access to the resources and educational rigor they need at the right moment in their education, across race, gender, ethnicity, language, ability, sexual orientation, family background, and/or family income. (WI DPI)
