Driven by Justice: Exploring the Work of School District Equity Directors
Weiler, Jessica R.; Stanley, Darrius A.
Journal of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, v7 n1 2023
A growing number of school districts are engaging in systems-level, equity-based reform to redress persistent disparities, and many are hiring Equity Directors to lead the way. This qualitative study explores the role of Equity Directors, asking, "What are the leadership practices of Equity Directors?" and "What are the purposes behind those practices?" We interviewed six district-level equity directors across one southeastern state within the United States. Using a grounded theory approach, we analyzed interviews and documents to construct an emerging framework outlining the work of district-level equity leaders. Our framework connects eight educational leadership practices (within four categories) to six, primary purposes.
