Educators continually face the task of assisting students in bridging academic disparities. Employing data strategically and acknowledging recent experiences will enable educators to concentrate their interventions effectively. In this 2-hour virtual workshop, participants will delve into the remediation paradox, analyze various scenarios considering factors like consistency, data utilization, equity, flexibility, and stakeholder involvement, and develop strategies to support teachers in addressing academic disparities.


This session is designed for district, school, and teacher leaders who interface with school-level educators to provide instructional support, training, and leadership.
