    Working to Eliminate Opportunity Gaps 

    Seattle Public Schools (SPS) recently held the first Eliminating Opportunity Gaps (EOG) Institute at Chief Sealth High School.

    The EOG Institute serves as training, sharing, brainstorming school for creating strategies for racial justice. The district believes passionately in the power of ideas to change practices and behaviors. During working session throughout the day, district and school leaders, teachers, and community leaders engaged with speakers and each other to create equitable solutions for eliminating opportunity gaps. 

    Participants got the chance to demo racial equity tools from expert facilitators, explore modules and collaborate to create an action plan for sharing EOG work in schools and SPS departments. They also got the opportunity to hear stories and perspectives of students before debriefing, sharing knowledge gained, and finalizing EOG action plans for the year.
