Teachers study data

Bryn Mawr Elementary School teachers spent a recent teacher training day continuing their evaluation of individual and systemic practices that are inequitable to students of color. 

Staff continued their learning journey about issues of equity in education, anchoring their work in Zaretta Hammond’s book, Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain. Bryn Mawr teacher-leaders led colleagues through a data carousel where they analyzed current student behavior data broken down by ethnicity and behavior, diving deeply into what data says about how student behavior is being addressed and how to dismantle the inequities within practices at school.

The work is part of Renton School District's mission to remove barriers and pursue outcomes that enable all students to realize their potential and maximize their future.
