Educational Equity &
Excellence Audits

BACKGROUND

Since 2005, NCUST has been identifying, celebrating, and studying outstanding elementary, middle, and high schools that achieve excellent learning results for every demographic group served. Our Educational Equity and Excellence Audit utilizes many of the same protocols we use to identify the recipients of our America’s Best Urban Schools Award. The audit process enables us to to help educators see how their school is similar to and different from schools that achieve outstanding learning results for all demographic groups.

Is Your School Generating High Levels of Success for All of the Diverse Populations Served?

Are You Implementing Practices Similar to Those Found in High-Performing Schools That Achieve Remarkable Results for African American, Latino, Low-Income, and English Learner Populations?

What Adjustments Might You Make That Could Accelerate Gap Closing and Promote Better Learning for All Students?
