The Program Improvement Process for Equity (PIPE) is a data-driven institutional change model for internal capacity building. PIPE engages teams of educators in long-term and sustainable improvement processes with an equity lens. Cross functional teams of educators will engage in workshops, form Professional Learning Communities, and implement an Action Research for Equity Project (AREP) with a humanizing lens to see data as insight to the variety of experiences that impact student success. Participants will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to support a continuous process of NAPE’s 5-step improvement cycle:
- Organize teams and review available data
- Explore and analyze data to identify equity gaps
- Discover causes of equity gaps
- Select potential solutions to address barriers to student success
- Act to implement strategies and evaluate solutions
