Custom Programs

Based on your needs and budget, we can design a custom program.

Change doesn’t happen overnight, and it doesn’t happen with a single intervention. A strategic approach is necessary to create meaningful and lasting change. 

We offer a variety of professional learning content and services that are combined and customized to meet the needs of each specific audience. We work with you to craft a solution that is best suited to meet your needs and budget.

Example Custom Program for a High School

This client wanted a program to improve educator awareness and move them to action. Our recommendation was for a year-long program combining half-day virtual workshops and monthly modules with discussions led by coached small-group leaders. 

Approximate Time
Intervention

Before School Year Starts

1/2 day (3 to 4 hour) virtual workshop

Each workshop will build on the other. In the first in the series, we will examine stereotypes and implicit bias and the unintentional impact on students.

~1 time per month over the course of the school year, for a total of 8 times

Coaching for small-group leaders 

I will meet with the small-group leaders monthly to prep them for the monthly discussions. I will also provide time for shared reflections and community building.

It is best if these individuals are volunteers who are ready for the challenge of facilitating conversations on educational equity. They don’t need to be experts, but they need to be up for the task.

~1 time per month over the course of the school year, for a total of 8 times

Staff complete an asynchronous learning unit to prepare for group discussion

The asynchronous activities will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, or more depending on the level of reflection. The activities vary from completing an exercise or watching a video. Sample modules on the following page.

~1 time per month over the course of the school year, for a total of 8 times

Small-group leaders facilitate discussion on monthly topics

Detailed facilitators guides will be provided based on the asynchronous learning unit. The goal of the monthly discussion modules is to build a shared vocabulary, deepen personal reflections, practice talking about educational equity, establish accountability, coach one another in applying strategies, and support growth in becoming inclusive educators. 

Mid to Late First Semester

1/2 day (3 to 4 hour) virtual workshop

The second virtual workshop will examine ways to build rapport and trust with students through our words, including how we provide feedback.

Early to Mid Second Semester

1/2 day (3 to 4 hour) virtual workshop

The third virtual workshop dives deeper by applying strategies learned thus far to examine our classroom or organizational procedures and processes for hidden (institutional/systemic) biases.
