Join us for an evening of learning, community, and celebration. For the past four years, more than 30 Bronx school and district leaders have been engaged in equity-focused continuous improvement to tackle critical problems of practice in math, reading, support for multilingual learners, and other priorities. We invite you to learn about and celebrate their work with us. Their equity-focused improvement work has been supported by their doctoral studies at Fordham University to purposefully address Bronx priorities and develop workable solutions. Come and find out what they have discovered, strategies that work, and the success they have achieved as you network and celebrate these important improvements in the Bronx. Food and drink will be provided.
