该委员会的议程被提交到第 3 区社区,以实现巨大的变革,并依靠我们道德理解的力量,即为所有学生提供公平的资源和接受高质量教育的机会,无论性别、种族、邮政编码、宗教、身体能力或性取向如何,对于我们服务的家庭来说都是有义务的。

我们力求解决任何系统性或根本性行为,这些行为会促进并维持 3 区内任何学校在学区内成绩最高、中等和成绩最低的学校之间存在明显差距,以至于这些学校被保留下来并被视为独立的机构。该委员会将努力消除这种差距,以遵守国家法律和我们的信念,即“独立的教育设施本质上是不平等的”。


  • 支持——为家长和学校领导创建一个空间,让他们分享他们在不平等方面的经历,并找出资金、资源和课程方面的差距。

  • 评估——确定财务/资源和教育差距,然后通过研究和数据制定战略解决方案,以建立、发展、迭代和提高我们所有 3 区学校各个年级和级别的学生对资源和强大课程的可访问性。

  • 外展 - 与第 3 区家长、教育局和民选官员合作并让他们参与进来,消除制度和教育差距。

  • 资源——创建资源信息交换中心,使学校能够更多地获得资金和实物捐赠。

June 11th Equity & Excellence Committee Meeting

Retrospective - Insights and Data


I was happy to conduct the retrospective exercise and was even more pleased with the conversation and results.


This information has been shared with the Superintendent, principals, and teachers in attendance.


You'll find attached the data and insights put together from the event. This is through the lens as a parent, CEC member, and product developer. What is detailed below is how I've scrubbed and sliced the data so it can be helpful to you. Note that the raw data from the event is in the raw data page. 



Themes & Topics

Common themes were put together based on the attendees' feedback. These themes cut across the three original topics (Remote Learning, Assessment, and Special Education Plans).


The original topics were provided so folks had a frame of reference when commenting, and also provided some framing regarding the initial slice taken during the retro. What emerged were themes and topics. 


The topics provide an opportunity to quickly understand what the theme covers. 


Questions & Considerations

The themes and topics are boiled down to some questions and things to consider as we move forward. I've done my best to stay away from providing solutions. Ideally, the questions should help to realize what a solution could look like. 



Couple additional notes:

  • Usually, during a retrospective, the facilitator is trying to get unique comments per person, but because this was done in a digital chat, a "riot mentality" manifested where people frequently repeated what someone else said. As a rule of thumb, facilitators are trying to avoid this behavior; although this organically happens during the retrospective when done in person.

    In a controlled, in-person environment, people write their own thoughts, and when there are identical comments, it infers something to make note of. When using a chat, it's overwhelming and hard to avoid.

    A lot of repeats and "kudos" comments were removed; although I was not overly diligent with this. I did my best to keep the data clean.

  • A lot of comments were general statements without a lot of contexts or additional information. I've used these comments as I understood the context, but I am aware that a different meaning might have been intended.

  • No one's name was left in the comments, so they are all anonymous.

  • If a comment was submitted by a principal or teacher (assuming they could identify by name in the original chat file), their comment is preceded with PRINCIPAL or TEACHER.

  • A few comments did not get added as they didn't have a place that aligned to a theme. There were very few of these. They were left in bold in the raw data tab for future reference
