GATE Equity Webinar is going to offer even more great content this year with two webinars every second Wednesday of the month! If you want to improve your system of supports, data use, instruction, and student achievement, this is the webinar for you.

GATE Equity Webinar helps growth minded educators and education advocates to learn from Washington districts who are closing opportunity gaps. Using OSPI data and experience from the field, GATE Equity webinar reveals the systems that drive success, an equity focus, and the key strategies that are getting students to graduation.

GATE Equity Webinar links research and best practice featuring education experts and Washington practitioners with findings on equity in graduation, such as attendance, 9th graders on-track, dual credit, discipline, community partnerships, and building strong teams. The goal of GATE Equity Webinar isn't merely to inform, but to give you insights to apply at schools, in your offices, and throughout your life.

In the morning, we will continue to bring you stories from districts who are doing great work. Starting in September, we're also adding a new specialized bonus webinar in the afternoons focusing in on specific student groups. These webinars will offer supports for students with disabilities, English Learners, ALE students and more while taking a deeper look at our topic for the month.

This month we’re focused on Dual Credit-TO EARN THE 3 CLOCK HOURS, YOU MUST ATTEND BOTH WEBINARS AND COMPLETE THE ONE-HOUR PRE-READING ASSIGNMENT, "Dual Credit System Improvement Guide."
