Opportunity Gap Cohort Career and College Success
The Opportunity Gap Cohort-Career and College Success is designed for school leadership teams to engage in data-driven collaboration with peers and focus their learning on a targeted group of underserved students in one of three disparity areas:
- Underrepresentation of Students of Color in GT/AP/Honors
- Overrepresentation of Students of Color in discipline
- Overrepresentation of Students of Color in Special Education
Through OGC-CCS’ multi-year program, school leadership teams will identify the potential root causes of a disparity, then develop and implement action steps to transform school-based structures and practices to positively impact student success.
