The 5 Phases of Deep Equity

The foundational 5 phases underpins the Deep Equity process to:

  • Establish a safe climate to allow staff and students to engage in open conversations about persistent inequities

How the Deep Equity Model Works

1. Develop School Leadership Teams in each school

Teams of 5-7 educators from each school within a district attend 7 days of School Leadership training led by a certified Deep Equity consultant to gain the process, protocols, language, and tools to engage in courageous, authentic, measurable, sustainable work in their buildings.

2. School Leadership Team members lead school reform at each site

School Leadership Team members engage the rest of their colleagues in sustained PD activities around addressing systemic barriers to achievement and creating culturally responsive learning environments.

3. Embed culturally responsive teaching into everyday practice

Educators use culturally responsive teaching strategies to create a culture of equity, inclusion, and excellence in every classroom and schoolwide.
