Seeking Excellence Through Equity in Our Schools

  • The Upper Darby Rising initiative invites all stakeholders in the Upper Darby School District community to help craft a detailed action agenda for sustained educational excellence with genuine equity.  The first phase of this initiative is being led by the Upper Darby School District in consultation with Catalyst Community Conversations of the University of Pennsylvania.

     

    Phase One

     

    Phase One runs through the winter of 2021.  This phase will consist of a series of six or more community dialogues.  These sessions will identify the key themes Upper Darby Rising must address as well as guidepost principles for how to take concrete, inclusive actions and build trust within the District and among community stakeholders.  The first phase is being led by a diverse citizens advisory board working with Catalyst Community Conversations of the University of Pennsylvania as consultant.

     

    Phase Two

     

    Phase Two will run throughout 2021.  During this phase, community input will drive the development of a concrete action plan to foster excellence with equity in the Upper Darby School District.
