The team takes responsibility for creating an empowering, inclusive, and inspirational culture which fosters engagement, growth and development, and sustainability across the organization.

The Partnership team consists of Partnership Directors and Partnership Managers, who are high-performing, equity-minded leaders who work in tandem with partner school districts and individual schools on implementing and integrating the Equal Opportunity Schools model into the operations and culture of each school.

The members of the Partnership Development team collaborate with districts and leaders across the nation as they learn about the Equal Opportunity Schools Action For Equity (A4E) partnership model and about their own systems of equity and opportunity. Districts are guided through the process of determining mutual fit and selection into the partner cohort through qualitative and quantitative submissions. The Partnership Development team is available to speak to interested leaders to explore possible partnerships.
