The National Symposium gathers equity champions together to learn, discuss, and advocate for equitable access and opportunity for students of color and low-income students, into rigorous college readiness courses, such as AP and IB. We encourage partner districts to send a contingency of district and school leaders (Superintendents, District Leads, Principals, School Leads, Equity/Diversity Directors, Counselors, Curriculum Directors, and AP/IB teachers) to attend and network during the two-day event.
Registration includes dinner at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church (sold out) or a reception at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights Museum, before the Monday evening Opening Plenary session (open to all registrants). There is no cost to attend beyond your airfare, hotel accommodations, and incidentals.
The Atlanta Marriott Marquis is our host hotel. Our room block has sold out, but the hotel still has plenty of rooms available near the $179/night rate. We would love to see you in Atlanta for Symposium 2020 and the kickoff dinner. For any questions, please contact Tofa McCormick.
Equal Opportunity Schools brings equity to AP and IB.
We collaborate with school districts to increase equitable enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, so more students can excel.
Equal Opportunity Schools’ mission is to ensure that students of color and low-income students have equitable access to America’s most academically intense high school programs and succeed at the highest levels.
Our partnership model is consultative, collaborative, and requires a commitment to specific and measurable results. Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) has helped more than 540 schools identify low-income students and students of color who qualify for, but are missing from AP or IB classes. Working together, we successfully enroll them and support their academic success.
EOS is headquarters in Seattle, Washington and continues to hire professionals to support our growing portfolio of partner districts.
