On November 8, 2016, hundreds of faculty, staff, and administrators from schools across District 65 came together for a full day of professional learning centered on equity. This is one of the District's key areas of focus this school year, in addition to fostering high quality teaching and learning and ensuring the district’s financial sustainability. The morning consisted of keynote speakers and breakout sessions led by a mix of individuals from District 65 and the Evanston/Skokie community who are committed to increasing equity in schools and communities. Staff and faculty had the opportunity to engage in one of four professional learning strands -Students at the Center, Family and Community Engagement, Leadership, and Learning and Teaching.
"What made this morning so powerful was seeing a diverse learning community coming to life. Educators from around our community and our schools came together to learn from one another and have deep discussion around the importance of creating an equitable learning environment where all learners feel fully supported," said Superintendent Goren of the day's events.
