Join WestEd’s Region IX Equity Assistance Center (EAC) at the Excellence Through Equity Conference: Eliminating Achievement and Opportunity Gaps for All Students. This event will be held September 24-25, 2015, at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa, Indian Wells, CA.

Region IX EAC staff Margit Birge, Nicodemus Ford, and Rose Owens-West, along with Leora Wolf-Prusan, a former member of WestEd’s Health & Justice Program, will present at the conference, designed to provide educators with the information and resources needed to eliminate the gaps in achievement, expectations, and opportunity for students from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Conference content will focus on state priority-aligned best practices that should be implemented to create equitable school environments for all learners.

This conference is ideal for school, district, and county-level administrators and teacher leaders. District and school teams are also encouraged to attend.
