July 28 – 29, 2015 Abington Senior High School Abington, PA 19001 The 2015 Symposium on Educational Excellence Through Equity: Five Principles of Courageous Leadership to Guide Achievement for Every Student, features renowned authors Alan M. Blankstein and Pedro Noguera, together with award-winning educational scholars, district and school leaders and practitioners who will share strategies that have pursued equity and closed instructional and achievement gaps at all levels from multicultural K-12 districts and schools. Symposium leaders will challenge the “zero sum” myth, arguing that equity is truly the path to excellence for both low and high-achieving students, and our K-12 educational system overall. Participants will learn: Examples of high-leverage practices used by award-winning schools and districts, including de-tracking, leadership capacity development and deployment to build teacher efficacy and close gaps between schools, and successful innovations in curriculum and assessment design Powerful classroom practices that lead to success for ELL, special Ed and underserved students as well as for their more privileged peers System-level examples of how excellence is being achieved through equity at the district–level Symposium attendees will receive a copy of Excellence Through Equity: Five Principles of Courageous Leadership to Guide Achievement for Every Student by Alan M. Blankstein, Pedro Noguera, with Lorena Kelley and forward by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. For more information or to register on-line, visit www.pasa-net.org.
