The Central Office Transformation for Equity Network (The Central Office TEN)

The Central Transformation for Equity Network (“Central Office TEN”) engages leaders from six U.S. school districts who have committed to advancing central office transformation for equity using anti-racist leadership practices. Over two years, leaders convene online and onsite in participating districts to learn while doing — deepening their understanding of central office transformation for equity and antiracism as they design and implement their own approaches and support each other’s efforts.

In the process, the network is producing resources for the field including:

Tools to help leaders move research into practice.
New knowledge about how central offices drive equitable teaching and learning.
