    State Stories: Celebrating and Supporting Improvement in Districts Identified With Significant Disproportionality

    States are identifying districts with significant disproportionality and supporting them to address the root causes of the significant disproportionality.

State and LEA panelists shared the small and large changes they have achieved, support strategies they have used, and lessons they have learned. Participants learned about ways states are working with districts to measure increments of change, evaluate progress, and make midcourse adjustments in policy and practice to address significant disproportionality.
