The current crisis has reinforced the idea that our education system and our practices must be transformed to better serve the needs of all of our students. This effort starts with clear and empowering leadership that 1) supports staff to be well and learn effectively, and 2) fosters an empowering, equitable, and inclusive vision for schooling and success, one that unites everyone (staff, students, families, and community leaders) in the process to reimagine and create a more equitable and effective experience for students and families.
