Racial Educational Equity School Community Sites

In the 2017-18 school year, All Hands Raised is working with seven school teams to ask hard questions, challenge biases and use data to develop proactive alternatives to keep all students in the classroom, learning and engaged. And, we bring all of these teams together two-to-three times a year to share cross-site learnings to strengthen the work through collaboration. All Hands Raised’s on the ground work, including much of the work done at the sites below, is enhanced by the advocacy and alignment provided by the Racial Educational Equity Strategic Leadership Group.
