Join us live for these 2 great webinars! 

Graduation A Team Effort (GATE) Equity Webinars help 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 webinars reveal the systems that drive success, an equity focus, and the key strategies that are getting students to graduation. 


We offer two distinct experiences that both feature Washington schools doing amazing work! GATE Equity Webinar 101 sessions, in the morning, are based on foundational best practices. GATE 201 Webinar sessions, in the afternoon, focus on a specific strategy from our monthly theme that you can apply to your context. 

9th Grade Success 101: Student Success Teams 

Interested in MTSS? Does it feel too big? Student Success Teams are a great way to take the first step! You don’t have to start with 9th grade! Any grade level team will benefit from these practices for timely data-based decision making. Join Portland Public Schools to learn about how they are using Student Success Teams to operationalize their supports. Ask questions and get great resources to get started!

9th Grade Success 201: Getting the Most Out of Advisory 

How do you know if you are getting the most out of advisory? What do you teach? How do you structure it? Learn from Chelan High School about how they are using their advisory to accomplish their School Improvement Plan goals, and attending to a variety of student needs. Get ideas for how to keep it fresh without a canned program and make time for what students really need in academics, relationships, and connection to the school.
