20 September
Time:  3:30 pm - 4:45 pm
Location:  Mackinac A

Representative districts and ISD/ESA/RESA's of MASA's 2022-2023 Beyond Equity cohort will share their journey of discovery and planned strategic transformation to ensure that each student has equitable access in their district. Join us and hear from YOUR COLLEAGUES as we more than imagine a student body and programs that represent the diversity of human experience where all doors are open to opportunities to engage each student in challenging critical thinking learning experiences, through instructional excellence, celebration, and representation; to a place where a staff and student body are motivated and supported to discover their passions and advance toward college, career, community, and life readiness.
