Due to the expanding outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in our state and with closure of school facilities, BEST will continue to provide all events online through December 2020. Information and updates will continue to be posted on this page. If direction from state leaders changes, we will make appropriate adjustments.

Note: BEST’s on-line events are interactive trainings, not webinars. We ask participants to use video when possible so that others can see and interact with them. It is possible to call in and join without video, if necessary. In all cases, participants are asked to participate in all activities via audio.

Annual BEST Spring Symposium (Virtual)

Equity in Action BEST Spring Symposium logo

An anti-racist leader takes action to dismantle the oppressive systems that perpetuate inequity. The Equity in Action: Leading for Educational Justice conference is a place for teacher leaders, mentors, and others who support the growth of teachers to develop their leadership voice and skills in service of racial equity. This includes stepping up, speaking up, and taking action as we strive to dismantle systemic inequities in education. We humble ourselves in the reality that we have much to learn.  More event details will be available in December 2020.
