AVID Site Coordinator, District Leader, Site-Based Administrator

Leading Change for Educational Equity 2 (LCEE2) is designed as a follow-up to the Leading Change for Educational Equity training that introduced school teams to the four AVID Schoolwide Domains. Partners can select two of the four Domains (Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture) for their LCEE2 professional learning experience. This offering explores Leadership and Culture.


Leading Change for Educational Equity 2: Leadership focuses on the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework through the lens of leadership. The course looks intentionally at vision-, mission-, and purpose-driven leadership and its alignment to policy, practices, and behaviors. The course looks directly at the role of a leader and identifies specific beliefs, behaviors, and skills effective leaders need to successfully implement the school improvement cycle at their site in order to better serve scholars and teachers. This session will examine how to successfully build leadership capacity to support the AVID College and Career Readiness System.

Performance Objectives

  • Understand the role of leadership by insisting on rigor, breaking down barriers, and advocating for students to ensure college and career readiness for all students.
  • Examine the power of a purposeful vision and its impact on school improvement.
  • Identify the behaviors, beliefs, and skills, effective leaders need to improve outcomes for all students.
  • Understand the role of a leader in ensuring success for all students at their site.
  • Apply a shared leadership model that builds leadership capacity to support AVID.


Leading Change for Educational Equity 2: Culture emphasizes that a culture grounded in equity, access, and opportunity is foundational for preparing all students to be college and career ready and that culture is instrumental in establishing aligned and interdependent systems, ensuring mission- and vision-driven leadership, and fostering a rigorous instructional framework so that all students are on the path to college and career readiness. Participants will learn strategies to confront personal biases and actively seek out and eliminate barriers that limit students’ access and opportunities. They will also utilize tools and resources to effectively create a plan for sustaining a culture that allows students to achieve their college and career goals.

Performance Objectives

  • Examine implicit and explicit personal biases that may hinder a culture of college and career readiness for all students.
  • Recognize existing opportunity gaps and identify ways to break down barriers to ensure students have what they need to be college and career ready.
  • Leverage the Law of Diffusion to build trust among all stakeholders and establish a culture of shared beliefs and values focused on equity for all students.
  • Develop actionable steps for creating and sustaining a culture grounded in equitable practices that provide access and opportunity for all students and understand that culture is foundational for other Domains to impact college and career readiness for all students.
