In celebration of the numerous stakeholders who partner with The Office of Equity and Access to achieve its important goals, OEA is proud to announce the 2017 CHAMPION OF EQUITY AWARD. The Champion of Equity Award will recognize and honor educators, advocates, and change agents who have a proven track record of transforming the lives of students from historically underrepresented communities by addressing systemic issues of inequity in education.  

Champions of Equity have a keen awareness that equity in education is actualized when educators provide all students with the educational support they need to achieve academic excellence.This award will celebrate schools, school leaders and the various stakeholders that are courageously recognizing, addressing and combatting the disadvantages caused by the inequitable access to a high quality education.
