Pittsford CSD Introduces District Equity Training Series for Staff

Beginning this summer, and ongoing, Pittsford Schools will offer a new Equity Series of training for Certified Staff and School Related Professionals (SRPs). This professional learning opportunity will allow the District to deepen its knowledge and understanding of the New York State Culturally Responsive- Sustaining Education (CR-SE) framework and continue its commitment to equity and inclusivity.

The series is made up of eight, two-hour modules that will be held multiple times throughout the summer and school year. The modules are organized around three of the New York State CR-SE principles:

• Welcoming and Affirming Environment
• High Expectations and Rigorous Instruction
• Inclusive Curriculum and Assessment

Each two-hour workshop is designed around one of the core principles of the CR-SE framework and has been developed to help participants apply an equity lens to various aspects of their work with students in various settings.
