High-End Achievement Gaps

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Location: 
Washington, D.C.

Efforts to close the achievement gap have often focused solely on the lowest performing students, and results from national assessments suggest that schools have made a lot of progress. We will, however, never close the achievement gaps that many are so committed to closing if we focus exclusively on bringing the bottom students up. Too often, initially high-performing black, Latino, and less advantaged students do not get the attention they need in their schools. We want to ensure that schools take action to better serve these overlooked students.

During this Webinar, Ed Trust researchers dig deeply into this issue and provide an overview of their recent findings, including analyses of nationally representative data and even personal interviews with high school students from across the country.

In this webinar, participants will engage with two sides of the technology conversation; infrastructure and content. Practitioners and technology experts will share how successful districts/charters are tackling challenges related to building sufficient infrastructure and rigorous digital learning content with equity in mind.

With Governor Brown’s unprecedented $1.25 billion commitment to Common Core in California, school districts across the state have a unique, one-time opportunity to accelerate implementation of the Common Core and to do so in a way that ensures all students, especially high need students, get the targeted supports they need to ensure they succeed.

This upcoming webinar comes on the heels of the recent release of Ed Trust-West’s latest brief and needs assessment titled, “The One Billion Dollar Question: How Can Districts and Schools Equitably Implement the Common Core?”, an easy-to-use primer for district, charter, county, and community leaders to access local Common Core implementation efforts based on best practices nationally and in California. During the webinar, participants will hear first hand from district leaders about how they are implementing Common Core States Standards aligned with the Ed Trust-West's needs assessment. Participants will also get helpful recommendations on how to allocate Common Core dollars and advice for addressing the many promises and pitfalls that lay ahead in the Common Core implementation process.
