About the Virtual Roundtable
This virtual roundtable will bring together various stakeholders to talk about the importance and benefits of school integration, methods available for school integration (specifically focusing on socioeconomic integration), and how school districts can work with local and state officials as well as their communities to design and implement school integration plans.
During this roundtable, you are invited to engage in lively conversation with key stakeholders around school integration, discover new resources provided by the roundtable participants, and gain knowledge in order to develop school integration plans that are specific to your geographic and sociopolitical contexts.
