Equity, Inclusion, and Opportunity: Creating Educational Systems That Meet the Needs of All Groups of Students

OSEP Project Directors' Conference, August 1–3, 2016

Many schools and districts have been identified as low performing or disproportionate because of disparities between subgroups on a variety of success measures. Other schools and districts are proactively trying to address identified success gaps. Presenters from IDC demonstrated IDC's Success Gaps Toolkit that can help schools and districts 1) prepare all of their students for success in college and careers by addressing success gaps, 2) collect and use quantitative and qualitative data for the purpose of root-cause analysis of those success gaps, and 3) focus attention on those root causes for the benefit of children and students in the lowest performing subgroups. Session discussion questions included: What have participants found to be effective in addressing success gaps, finding root causes, and developing data-based improvements plans? How would states or localities need to adapt the success gaps materials to fit the context of their state or locality?
