A California County Office of Education Professional Learning Network
As part of the COVID Education Equity Response Collaborative, WestEd led a year-long Equity Accelerator to support California County Offices of Education (COEs) in improving the alignment of whole-child and whole-school efforts that cohere around a vision of equity.
The Equity Accelerator provided a statewide professional learning series and an intensive fellows program for select COEs. Fellows learned the technical skills needed to affect change as well as the adaptive strategies necessary to create systemic and sustainable change.
Professional Learning Series
In professional learning sessions, participants explored issues of adult mindsets and biases underlying education policies and practices; stakeholder agency, voice, and choice; and culturally responsive, trauma-informed, healing-centered, restorative, and inclusive practices.
Access archived sessions:
- Stakeholder Voice, Agency, and Co-Creation for Equity in Education
- Why YOUR Wellness Matters: The Intersections of Leaders’ Mental Health, Systems Change, and Equity
- Liberatory Design for Equity in California’s County Offices of Education
