Aligned to the Leadership Academy’s Principal Supervisor Leadership Standard #5: Cultivate Principals’ Cultural & Political Responsiveness, this webinar engaged participants in a discussion about creating the conditions and structures necessary for focused work around racial equity across districts and within schools. The webinar highlighted the leadership and commitment of Hartford Public Schools Superintendent Beth Schiavino-Narvaez and her team as they have used equity to approach the district’s mission to “inspire and prepare ALL students to create their own success in and beyond school.”
