District Equity Audit

 

K-12 CONSULTING

The equity audit process is a way to assess the degree of alignment between schools and districts with their core programs, policies, or practices.

The results can develop recommendations that improve outcomes across all student subgroups.  Our equity audits aim to assist education leaders in identifying and resolving institutional inequities.
