Deep Equity Institute PDF

State Support Team 9 is pleased to announce that Corwin (A SAGE Publishing Company) has invited our team to be a partner in supporting the Deep Equity Institute.  This will be held in Cleveland June 14-15,  2018, and due to our partnership with Corwin, we are able to offer a discounted registration to school districts and other regional partners.

Our hope is that many district team members will see the opportunity to attend this national institute as a “next step” to organizational growth and to drive positive change.
