To eliminate these inequities, leaders must understand how their current piecemeal approaches are not only ineffective, but are exacerbating these inequities. Further, most equity work addresses only one aspect of inequities, such as culturally relevant pedagogy or developing culturally competent staff. Instead, leaders must learn how to transform the entire education system via Integrated Comprehensive Systems for (ICS). ICS is the only equity-focused work that takes a systems approach to eliminate inequities.
A focus on equity guides all team decisions. To develop a focus on equity requires a thorough understanding of the educational history of marginalization, a shift from deficit vs. assets thinking and practice, advance our own identity development across differences, apply the equity research, complete an equity audit, and develop Equity Non-Negotiables.
Staff and students are aligned guided by the Equity Non-Negotiable of proportional representation. All staff share expertise through Co-Plan to Co-Serve to Co-Learn (C3)™ Teams in support of all learners.
All policies, procedures, and funding are aligned with the Equity Non-Negotiables and federal and state legislation is leveraged to eliminate inequities.
These Co-Plan to Co-Serve to Co-Learn (C3)™ Teams develop identity relevant and rigorous teaching and learning experiences with and for all students.
All individuals who wish to eliminate inequities can benefit from the ICS Four Cornerstone Framework and Process, including educators in K-12 schools, districts, regions, state education agencies, educator preparation programs, universities, and community agencies.
