This one - day symposium provides a forum for school board members, public school advocates, and community leaders to examine and discuss the strategies, current trends, research, and best practices that are positively impacting the educational outcomes of academically and economically disadvantaged students in traditional K-12 public settings.

The event, sponsored by the National School Boards Association (NSBA), National Caucus of American Indian/Alaska Native School Board (AIAN), Council of Urban Boards of Education (CUBE), National Black Council (NBC), and National Hispanic Council (NHC), is focusing on building the capacity, knowledge, and skills of school board members around issues of access, equity, and diversity in public education.

The 2017 Equity Symposium was held on January 28th and has now concluded. The presentations and handouts from each session can be found on the agenda page.

Next year’s date will be announced soon.
