A goal of Partners continues to be building awareness about, and the reputation of, Partners in order to become the nationally recognized leader in equity-focused school improvement. As part of this, we have continued to seek opportunities to spread our message.
In the last year, staff have successfully presented (virtually) at the Carnegie Summit on “Developing Equity-Focused Leaders for Improvement: Cases from a research-based framework.” We also completed stories from the field that highlight how we help educators build their capacity in various aspects of school-improvement. Additionally, we continue to pursue opportunities to write articles in magazines that reach thousands of educators. For example, we are currently working on an article that discusses how educators can “up their equity game” for a magazine that is distributed to California’s school and district leaders.
Last but certainly not least, we are in the process of writing a book which will be geared toward educators (teachers, coaches, principals, district leaders) and will document our approach and impact across different regions! To date, we have worked with a consultant to support us in developing four chapters and have identified a publisher. We are aiming to complete the book by fall 2022 and will outline a marketing plan to amplify the book-release across multiple platforms. There will be more details on all of this in the coming months so stay tuned!
