The Pennsylvania Department of Education released the Equitable Practices Hub in September 2020. Six equity pillars of practice organize the hub: general equity, self-awareness, data, family and community engagement, academic equity, and disciplinary equity. This session will provide an overview of the hub and the importance of equity in Pennsylvania schools. Act 48 credits will be available.
