Becoming a strategic support

What do central office Operational units have to do with equitable teaching and learning?

Operational units—including Buildings & Grounds, Nutrition Services, and Transportation—matter to equitable teaching and learning. DL2’s research shows that when their staff improve their efficiency, they save school principals’ and teachers’ time to focus on students. Even more importantly, staff advance those results when they participate as central partners in realizing learning-rich and equitable schools.
