Target Audience: District & Building Level Administrators


The Leaders' Summit seeks to provide a forum for understanding the achievement gap from a different perspective. The goal of this summit is to encourage schools leaders to critically reflect on their school/district practices. Leaders will reflect on the following key questions:

  • How do district/building level policies enhance or impede students' opportunities to learn?
  • What can our district/building level leaders do to enhance students' opportunities to learn?
  • How do school administrators appropriately balance the tensions between culture, policy, and practice?
  • How do we create a school culture that focuses on students' assets?
  • How do teachers' instructional practice in the mathematics classroom enhance or impeded students' opportunities to learn?


Conference Overview
The Responsive Mathematics Institute is an opportunity for educators to examine mathematics instruction from an equity perspective. Participants will explore the following questions:

How does identity influence one’s perception of math?
What are strength based instructional models that can be implemented in the mathematics classroom?
How can cultural modeling be embedded within the mathematics classroom?
How have I imposed my biases on students?
What privileges do I have because of my identity?
How can we as educators develop a reflective practice?
