Early Registration is now open for the
2023 Annual National ICS Equity Virtual Institutes!
At the Annual National ICS Virtual Institute Part I, new teams (team members who have not previously completed Part I) will:
Strengthen your understanding and implementation of the framework and process of Integrated Comprehensive Systems for Equity;
Engage in plentiful team time throughout the event to dive into a deep equity analysis of your setting;
Complete an Equity Action Plan for your school, district, region, or state to advance equity systems change for all.
3-Day Virtual Institute for Returning Teams on August 8-10, 2023
virtually from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. CDT each day.
At the Annual National ICS Virtual Institute Part II, returning teams (team members who have previously completed Part I) will:
Review the implementation and next steps of Cornerstones 1 and 2 in your schools and districts;
Engage in deep, practical application of Co-Plan to Co-Serve to Co-Learn.
The Institutes will be held virtually, via synchronous online learning (using the free Zoom video meeting platform).
As co-presenters, Dr. Colleen Capper and Dr. Elise Frattura bring a combined history of over 65 years of distance learning experience to the Virtual Institute. The Virtual Institute will mirror previous in-person Institutes’ content and pace with an ebb and flow between small group and large group work.
For District and School Leadership Teams, state and regional teams, non-profit and for-profit organizations, city/county governments, and those in higher education.

Can I attend the Annual National ICS Institutes without a team?
The ICS Framework and Process builds the “collaborative equity capacity” of the entire organization through team implementation. The ICS Institute relies on intentional teams to learn about the Framework and Process to implement ICS in their settings.
An individual or two from an organization may attend the Annual National ICS Institutes to learn about the work to be able to invite teams from their setting to attend future ICS Institutes.
Will you provide an equity workshop for our event?
Moving beyond piecemeal equity efforts, the ICS Framework and Process advances equity systems change–from a deficit to a proactive system.
ICS is not an initiative, a model, or a workshop. The ICS Four Cornerstone Framework and Process forms the core and provides a framework for all of the organization’s work.
We can provide a one-half day overview of the ICS Framework and Process as a way to introduce the work and to help participants decide on hosting or attending a 3-day ICS Institute.
We also provide custom professional development for organizations who have completed an ICS Institute to deepen the work.
What are the Annual National ICS Institutes Part I and Part II?
The 2023 Annual National ICS Institutes Part I and Part II will be held virtually, via synchronous online learning. The Annual National ICS Institutes are designed for teams (e.g, district leadership team, school leadership team, state teams, regional teams, association teams, and other organizational teams).
The ICS Institute Part I , 3-day event, is designed to introduce teams to the ICS Equity Framework and Process.
The ICS Institute Part II: Co-Plan to Co-serve to Co-Learn (C3)™, 3-day event, is hosted by individual school districts and is designed for teams to engage more deeply with the Co-Plan to Co-Serve to Co-Learn (C3) process.
Teams find the ICS Institutes invaluable as they experience various activities within each Digital Module that teams will in turn facilitate in their settings. The ICS Institutes provide extensive time for teams to collaborate on each of the ICS Steps and to create their ICS Action Plan to carry the work forward in their setting.
