This meeting of the Community of Practice was focused on centering students. We heard from educators who have been using student input to improve on-track systems in schools. As we seek to transform or re-imagine how we build the classrooms and schools students need, drawing on student data is one way to tap into students’ brilliance, cultural wealth, and intellectual potential to inform what becomes our new normal.
Speakers included Sarah Howard, Senior Director of the Partner Network at The Network for College Success at the University of Chicago, and Gina Pascual, Senior Improvement Coach for CORE Districts.
