We’re positioning school administrators and staff to better impact and alter the student experience.

The Equity Leader Lab (ELL) convenes together in regional cohorts, Equal Opportunity Schools’ (EOS) partner Equity Team members to develop the policies, practices and attitudes to sustain equity and adopt the policies, practices and mindsets necessary to support historically marginalized students. The ELL is an important component in developing extraordinary leaders.

EOS assumes that all ELL participating schools continue to facilitate use of EOS tools and resources at their site- including but not limited to surveys, outreach, advocacy and enrollment of historically marginalized students.


If interested in joining us to build the premier learning network of school and district leaders, who boldly serve historically marganizlied students at the highest levels, then contact us to learn if your school is eligible to join.

What ELL participant are saying.

Responses from ELL 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 ELL 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 ELL 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 ELL Member

When asked what was most beneficial about the ELL experience

Getting an understanding of how different students in my class feel about the class and my teaching/level of care. – Pilot ELL 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 ELL Member
