The Academy

In our 12-week hybrid academy participants learn how to enact policies, budget, build a coalition, and run a campaign that advances educational justice in their district. Our flagship program ensures that leaders are prepared for the commitment of the role and have the appropriate time to develop the skills and knowledge to become highly effective school board members and advocates. 

After participating in the Academy, our alumni: 

- Understand how to make an impact by leveraging specific levers of power to move their school district and board forward 
- Lead with understanding of equity issues, evidence-based policy making and cultivating resources and support for their initiatives
- Have a community of values-aligned peers who are making an impact in their own districts  across the state
