Meet our strategic initiatives team.

The Strategic Initiatives department manages the application process for all incoming Equal Opportunity Schools partners and maintains relationships with continuing partners in order to best support their ongoing work. The members of the Strategic Initiatives team collaborate with districts and leaders across the nation as they learn about the Equal Opportunity Schools 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 Strategic Initiatives team is available to speak to interested leaders to explore possible partnerships.
