Student Learning Outcomes

  • Learning leaders center critical consciousness and sociopolitical action in their work. They draw on a range of asset-based frameworks and use varied and often underutilized data sources (e.g. community cultural wealth (CCW), street data)  to design, support, and enhance robust learning experiences for and with students, teachers, staff, and their communities.
  • Change partners leverage continuous improvement approaches to understand, disrupt, and enact meaningful organizational change bidirectionally and inclusively with their community and educational partners.
  • Organizational leaders drive improvement in learning systems by creating a shared vision, shared power, team learning, and developing leadership capacity through culturally and linguistically relevant strategies.
  • Community-centered leaders support students, teachers, and the community by integrating community assets, cultural diversity, and history into all aspects of their leadership practice and co-building and sustaining mutually beneficial partnerships with the community, beyond institutionalized spaces.
  • Relationship Builders develop, foster, and sustain empowering relationships with the school community. They have knowledge of the structures, protocols, and tools for bringing partners together and communicating in a way that is culturally responsive and inclusive.
  • Anti-Racist Policy Advocates actively seek and make changes that disrupt and re-shape systems perpetuating racial and other inequities and building systems of justice. They affirm and empower educational partners to harness the resources needed to navigate and dismantle an unjust world with empathy, savvy, and agency to create an educational system that is just, equitable, and inclusive.
  • Reflective thinkers connect learning and create processes that facilitate authentic, vulnerable inquiry at the personal, team, and organizational levels. This includes active, persistent, participatory reflection on one’s positionality including thinking rigorously about your recent/past experiences that speak to informing your next steps and your next actions.
