Ensuring that all students are taught by effective teachers is one of the core foundational principles of schooling. States, districts, and schools continue to face challenges to accomplish this important goal to provide all students matriculating in K–12 public schools with effective teachers.
This tool serves as a guide to develop a comprehensive Educator Equity Plan that seeks to engage in a cyclical process to accomplish the two important equity goals listed below. Because achieving educator equity requires a continuous and strategic process, the equity graphic illustrates the four phases of this ongoing equity work: analysis, design, implementation, and refinement. Throughout the interactive PDF, these phases are explained in detail, and carefully developed strategies are listed to guide the development of each phase of the equity plan for your district.
