Sharing Practices

We engage educators and school leaders to learn from each other's success.

Through two initiatives, Compact partners observe classroom and school solutions for tacking opportunity and achievement gaps for Black and Latino boys.

School Partnerships

The Compact sponsors a cross-sector group of three schools focused on Black and Latino boys. The Codman Academy; The Martin Luther King, Jr. K-8 School; and St. John Paul II Catholic Academy (Neponset) are working together to identify best practices in supporting strong academic and social/ emotional outcomes for 3rd and 4th grade boys of color. The school teams tour and observe each other's classrooms, come together for professional development workshops, and run cycles of inquiry to identify practices that improve student outcomes in all three types of school. 

Learning Days

With support from The Teachers Collaborative, the Compact brings together educators from district, charter, and Catholic schools to learn about and share best practices for supporting Black and Latino boys and young men in schools across Boston. Together, educators spend a day visiting Boston schools that have shown evidence of success. They observe regular school routines and engage in group conversation with school leaders and students to gain insight into the school's approach to closing opportunity and achievement gaps.
