Join Equal Opportunity Schools at one of our upcoming events.


National Symposiums

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, Councilors, Curriculum Directors, and AP/IB teachers) to attend and network during the two-day event. Contact us at marketing@eoschools.org to learn more.
