Merely implementing the practices of proficiency-based learning does not necessarily produce a high-quality, equitable system. Addressing equity and supporting the success of all learners requires much more. How should we define equity in a personalized, proficiency-based system? How can school leaders ensure educators take responsibility for addressing equity issues? How can we work together to ensure that proficiency-based systems take full advantage of what we know about equity strategies that benefit all students, especially students who have been historically underserved?

In this session, presenters and participants will take an extensive dive into the questions above. Presenters will introduce frameworks on equity and quality to guide reflection, design, and implementation of proficiency-based systems; share insights, stories, and challenges gathered from schools across the country; and facilitate conversations that dig into the important issues of equity and quality and help guide the development of individual and collective calls to action.

Participants will leave with insights about the relationship between equity and quality in a proficiency-based system; ideas, strategies, and resources for ensuring equity and quality are addressed in their proficiency-based system; and an opportunity to learn with and from other educators from across the country engaged in similarly important and challenging work.
