FOCS: Discussion with Dr. Tracey L. Durant, Director of Equity
In June 2018, the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners held a Board Forum on Equity where it became clear that there was a need to create an equity policy to ensure success for students, with a particular focus on eliminating the predictability and persistence of disparities for children of color. In November 2018, Dr. Tracey L. Durant was hired as the Director of Equity for Baltimore City Schools. Shortly thereafter, the Strategic Equity Taskforce was created. The Equity Taskforce held a series of stakeholder engagement sessions, then developed an Equity Policy for City Schools.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Tracey L. Durant, Director of Equity, Baltimore City Schools. Dr. Durant will share the equity policy, the work of the Equity Task Force and vision for equity work in the future.
