Pulling Together – Equity Symposium for Harris County school districts
Friday, March 5th, 2021 – 9:00 a.m. start time
Harris County Department of Education- Center for Safe and Secure Schools, is excited to host Pulling Together- Equity Symposium to provide Harris County school districts a rich day of learning by responding to the array of pressing issues of inequity across the region. Symposium participants will learn from diverse educational equity experts that will guide educators to reimagine and create equitable opportunities for all students. The impact from this symposium will be felt in our community beyond the date of this event, for there will be a call to action at the conclusion of the day for local superintendents to engage in a policy boot-camp through the summer to ensure equitable practices in their districts for the upcoming school year. It has been said that “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” By pulling and working together, we can begin to uncover the areas of inequity and start making the changes necessary to yield equitable outcomes across Houston and Harris County schools.
