District Practices

Helping all students succeed is a district-level issue.

District Practices

That's why addressing racial disparities at the district level is vital.  Only then can we create true change.  District-level management of the issue allows us to identify, analyze and overcome systemic barriers and develop a broad, comprehensive vision for eliminating racial disparities.

A number of tools are offered at the district level to help educators focus efforts to work toward educational equity for all students:

  • Identify factors  that contribute to disproportionality with a checklist 
  • Study an assessment of Wisconsin schools to identify barriers to and gaps in student learning 
  • Learn about topical resources, including professional development models, books and speakers
  • Participate in a Consortium on Racial Equity in Education in Wisconsin 
  • Tap into resources that assist in identifying cultural mismatch
