The Burlington School District’s priorities are to work on “reducing the disparities and closing the achievement gap, while raising the Bar.” But just what exactly does that mean? What is the achievement gap anyway?
Burlington School District’s “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” Board Committee is hosting a community workshop, “Achievement Gap 101,” to help answer that question. Join district staff, educators, and school board members on February 20th from 6:00 – 7:30 for this free workshop designed to help community members gain a foundational understanding of the achievement gap and the district’s strategies for closing it. Come learn more and connect with others in your community who are interested in helping all of our community’s children succeed!
Space for this event is limited to 50 participants and will be on a first come, first served basis. If you’re interested, please RSVP via email to Mary Hewitt by February 12.
RSVP’s will receive an email confirming attendance and additional event details, including location.
In the event that there is a large amount of community interest, we will work to hold another session.
