We collaborate with school administrators and staff to impact and alter the student experience.
The Equity Leader Lab (EL-Labs) convenes together, in regional cohorts, Equal Opportunity Schools’ (EOS) partner districts and school Equity Team members to develop and adopt the policies, practices, and mindsets to sustain equity in support of historically marginalized student success. The EL-Labs is an important component in developing extraordinary leaders.
EOS assumes that all EL-Labs participants have successfully implemented the EOS program and utilize EOS’ data tools at their school.

What EL-Labs participant are saying.
Responses from EL-Labs participants
“Looking at data from a student perspective isn’t something we are typically doing. Sometimes we think something is working or going well and students feel differently. That was a huge eye-opener to understand what’s working.” – Pilot EL-Labs Member
“Try to cultivate a spirit of AP humility. Previously I would have 1 or 2 students of color, and most of my students had similar life experiences to me. Now I have one student who isn’t a student of color now I approach this class, I’m ignorant of the expertise that students bring to the class. How can we use the context of the text to help learn from each other. Conversations with fellow teachers and the data has helped.” – Pilot EL-Labs Member
“Tried to be very reflective during this process. Figure out what’s working and what’s not. For AP next year what am I going to do differently? Made me see things in a different way. Strategies I’ve never thought about. I was reflective and flexible. Trying something new/different.” – Pilot EL-Labs Member
When asked what was most beneficial about the EL-Labs experience
Getting an understanding of how different students in my class feel about the class and my teaching/level of care. – Pilot EL-Labs Member
The opportunity to engage in a meaningful examination of my delivery of instruction. Also, an opportunity to introduce strategies to improve the academic success of my students. – Pilot EL-Labs Member
