Lee's Summit R-7 School District

Results from Diversity, Equity and Belonging Thoughtexchange and EEC Training Evaluations from District Leaders

Last May, the district gathered feedback on our diversity and equity initiatives using a Thoughtexchange forum that allowed participants to share thoughts, rank ideas and interact with other people’s comments.

Click here for a presentation, as well as links to data, that showcases the top thoughts and trends from that May 2019 forum.

Thanks to those who participated in the Thoughtexchange. We hope you find the thoughts helpful to moving forward in a positive and reflective manner.

Please also visit our Equity website for more on this board priority.

It is also important to our team to be able to release information about the initial equity training experiences with Educational Equity Consultants. 

Throughout the month of August and September, four cohorts of teams embarked upon the first layers of professional development with Educational Equity Consultants (EEC). 

The four teams were: 

  • Board of Education Cohort
  • Superintendent’s Leadership Team Cohort 
  • School and District Leaders – Cohort One 
  • School and District Leaders – Cohort Two 

After each learning session, members of the teams provided evaluation feedback. The evaluations consisted of likert scale ratings from “strongly disagree” to “strongly agree.” The feedback was compiled by Educational Equity Consultants and is provided below.

You can review the feedback here.
