TACD Long Island Regional Root Cause Trainings
This four-part series identifies root causes to disproportionality: The root cause process entails technical assistance sessions with a school district root cause team. The team will collect and review school district data to identify the possible causes of disproportionality as well as possible solutions for addressing disproportionality and equity gaps. The goal of the root cause analysis is to: (1) identify the possible root causes and compounding factors of disproportionality, (2) examine and identify beliefs, policies and practices that contribute to disparate outcomes, (3) explore how race, culture and privilege, as well as other social identities perpetuate disproportionality and (4) develop a plan designed to address these identified causes and compounding factors. TAC-D will achieve these goals through an interactive process of facilitated meetings, data collection, and analysis.
