Yes, chancellor!

Hopefully, testament that our ideal of an independent judiciary can work
Mary-Frances Tintle
01:20:03
This new normal has given us the opportunities to make positive changes and really look at what those changes need to be.
Tiffany Young
01:20:14
This is my first opportunity to join completely. Thank you for this platform, and for the ASL interpreter. Looking forward to hearing how many districts are/have addressed internal systemic barriers that prevent the work from getting done to address inequities.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:20:25
What steps are you taking to ask traditionally marginalized groups what they need or want to change? How are you engaging with those stakeholders as opposed to prescribing?
Donna Drakeford
01:20:34
How will you leverage the community supports who showed up for the immediate needs and continuing the supports school districts needed
marty creel
01:23:11
Kudos to Chancellor Carranza for taking on the test-in programs. Very courageous move!
Emily Puccio
01:23:24
I hear a desire among district leaders to use this moment to move progressive, equitable education forward, but with an acknowledgement of the strength of various systems. How do you recommend district leaders move forward to forge necessary change despite the stronghold of "the way it's always been."
Cindy Moss
01:24:11
How are you encouraging your school board members to make decisions that will dismantle some of the inequitable institutional practices in our schools?
meghan_sears
01:24:24
How do we make sure to keep students with disabilities at the forefront of discussions of equity? Students of color historically are underdiagnosed and underserved.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:24:35
Budgets are moral documents. Your budgets reflect what you value!
Susana Cordova, Superintendent, Denver Public Schools, CO

Paola Moore-Pagano
01:24:49
Bettina Love in her Abolitionist Teaching argues against Standardized Testing. What is your stance on standardized testing and the extent to which it perpetuates inequity?
Dr. Jaime Aquino, Discovery Education
01:25:04
Please select all panelists and attendees when posting your comments and questions
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:25:29
I love the specificity of your D&I work related to policies in CPS.
Snehal Bhakta
01:25:34
Great points on unconscious bias, micromessaging, etc… it can’t be done in a hour of PD, a day, etc… It has to be continually, consistent, and frequent with regards to support and PD for educators/admin.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:26:49
Empower students to be a part of the community of learning. Give them ownership and teach them advocacy. Voice is such a huge part of equity work
Stephanie Workman
01:26:54
Wow, how empowering for the students
Kim D Moore
01:27:06
Teaching student to advocate for themselves is critical to student development.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:27:11
Equity is not only about what you give someone. It’s what I can do for myself.
Donna Drakeford
01:27:11
Yes
Anna-Marie Booth
01:27:32
Enlightened to teach students their rights! Transferrable to their interacting within the larger society. Kudos Dr. Jackson!
Cindy Moss
01:27:49
Love the policy to make students aware of their rights!
Mary-Frances Tintle
01:27:52
Empower the students. I'm already thinking about how I'm going to do that in my school this year.
Jon Martin
01:27:57
Yes, Dr. Jackson! Amazing!
Stacey Ridgeway, Discovery Education
01:27:59
Awesome work Dr. Jackson!
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:28:04
When students have the confidence to speak for themselves and KNOW that they will be heard without negative repercussions that creates the POWER shift that needs to happen.
Kalli
01:28:09
In a community group meeting last night, the idea of reaching out to the youth in our city, specifically our young Black and Latinx men, so they know their rights, was brought up. It is absolutely IMPERATIVE for ALL students to know those! How empowering.
Jordan Baker
01:28:31
Awesome work empowering students!
Mary-Frances Tintle
01:28:41
Yes Keishla Ceaser! I agree with you
Fowzigiah Abdolcader
01:28:52
How are SROs trained so when they arrive, they are de-escalating the situation rather than escalating it?
Jane Armstrong
01:28:59
Can you post the code of conduct/student rights Dr. Jackson? Thank you!
Dr. Janice K. Jackson, Superintendent, Chicago Public Schools IL
01:29:00
ere is the link link to our webpage. You will notice a section entitled Student Bill of Rights. This is the preamble to our student code of conduct manual. We wanted our students to know their rights and responsibilities first before we start telling them what they can and cannot do. Please note that we update this every year. The newest version has four major changes that are pending Board approval. They include revisions around the use of in-school suspension and removes two catch-all codes that resulted in a disparate amount of black students being suspended for minor offenses.
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:29:02
I love the involvement of families and stakeholders with the SRO decision.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:29:03
Systems of inequity maintain themselves because of an imbalance of power.
Donna Drakeford
01:29:06
Minor disagreements of infractions become escalated in classrooms where there are discipline issues from teachers who do not value
Dr. Janice K. Jackson, Superintendent, Chicago Public Schools IL
01:29:19
https://cps.edu/pages/studentcodeofconduct.aspx
Kim D Moore
01:29:24
When SRO's engage in the community of schools, they can become part of the educational process.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:29:25
Exactly, @Donna Drakeford
Dr. Janice K. Jackson, Superintendent, Chicago Public Schools IL
01:29:45
Student Bill of Rights: https://cps.edu/SiteCollectionDocuments/1_SBOR.pdf. Co-authored by our students.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:30:00
And it mirrors the “resisting arrest” mindset which is often about a lack of submission to authority.
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:30:04
Unfortunately, the nation wasn’t setup for everyone.
Donna Drakeford
01:30:22
Students do not suspend themselves; biases both explicit and implicit create the conditions
Brie Messier
01:30:26
absolutely, walk the talk!
Snehal Bhakta
01:30:27
We shouldn’t “rush” to re-open school and get back to the way things were because honestly it is not working. This is our opportunity to lead, change, improve, and ensure education if for all by addressing equity, diversity, inclusion and access for all students.
Coni Rechner, Discovery Education
01:30:31
Stop the coffee talk and walk the walk!
Darrin Lee
01:30:38
What intervention tool are systems putting in place to reduce infractions if students are not suspended. I believe we are doing an injustice when we do not put in place system and structures that support students beyond the disciplinary referral.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:30:51
Love it, @Dr. Carranza….don’t talk about it, BE about it!
Tammy Williams
01:31:01
🎊All of these CEOs are Phenomenal, Proven & Effective Leaders!🎊
Kathryn O'Brien
01:31:03
Best quote yet: stop the coffee talk and walk the walk! Make me a t-shirt!
Karen
01:31:15
Wouldn't removing SROs put them on the outside of trying to build with the community? The police that are good should be in school to show that not all police are a danger to the students.
Joshua Bornstein
01:31:43
Follow up to @DarrinLee, how do systems avoid using PBIS/MTSS to swap one deficit identity for another: how not to go from “bad kid” to “sick kid"?
Sean
01:31:44
We have had great success with a Restorative Justice model...Very empowering.
Johnetta Vaughan
01:32:58
Yes!!!
Anna-Marie Booth
01:33:07
What structures are in place to effect the culture?
Cindy Moss
01:33:09
So important to build trust!
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:33:12
love the build trust!!!!!
Kim D Moore
01:33:18
When I was a Principal, my SRO was a integral member of my restorative justice process. We partnered to support of our students and community.
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:33:26
That’s huge. Historical Trauma is REAL
Julia Tatsch
01:33:39
What is the best way for essentially a lay person like me to convince the head of school here to move ahead? I believe she wants to begin the work but she can’t get out of her own way to let trusted people move ahead with courageous conversations around race and identity. I need the community to get on board and it is frustrating to not feel as though, despite EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING ON, leadership is afraid. I need some help with how to push without scaring those in charge.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:33:47
@Sean, RJ is critical. We have a culture that even when a person has paid their debt to society, we allow that wrongdoing to hang on their necks like an albatross. It’s so important to bring people back into society when possible and restore the social bonds
Kim D Moore
01:34:02
#Real talk @Dr.Jackson
Cindy Moss
01:34:08
@Kim Moore I saw lots of examples of SROs helping to build trust in Charlotte Mecklenburg. I am sad that people want to remove SROs without looking at individual situations
Anna-Marie Booth
01:34:30
Are most of your educators people of color?
Coni Rechner, Discovery Education
01:34:31
Bridge Building is important part of leadership
Dave Hankin
01:34:36
SROs can play a pivotal role....
Sean
01:34:44
I agree Keisha
Melvin J Brown
01:35:06
Facts
Julia Tatsch
01:35:11
Anna-Marie - are you asking me?
Sonya Hunte
01:35:33
That is very true!
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:35:42
YES!!!! That’s real. Lack of representation in those spaces hurt. Strategic planning
maria.gabriel
01:35:44
To the panelists- Thank you for your courageous leadership! You inspire us!
Sean
01:35:47
We are a rural district that tries hard to recruit minority teachers...It is hard.
Jordan Baker
01:35:57
Yes….strategic planning/action is powerful!
Cindy Moss
01:35:59
We all need to be strategic in attacking policies that have the best chance of providing justice to our students
MaryJo Rosania-Harvie, AP Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts
01:36:07
thank you for that.
Jane Armstrong
01:36:14
Dr. Jackson, you are AMAZING!!!
Cindy Moss
01:36:20
You 3 are amazingly courageous leaders!
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:36:24
Fantastic Dr. Jackson

#ChancelorSuit…LOL
Tiffany Young
01:37:14
Thank you Dr. Jackson.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:37:25
Kids keep you real!
Cindy Moss
01:37:29
Kids have great fake meters for sure! You 3 are wonderfully real!
Dr. Janice K. Jackson, Superintendent, Chicago Public Schools IL
01:37:43
I like that. “I like the little people more!”
MaryJo Rosania-Harvie, AP Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts
01:37:50
you are all amazing.
Kim D Moore
01:37:51
When you are the only one, it is always a struggle. Everyday I enter my office, I carry the weight of being the only Black person and Black woman.
Jordan Baker
01:38:23
#Authenticity
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:38:27
@Kim, I agree. It’s so hard to be “the one”. It’s a heavy weight, but one I carry for those who come behind me.
Cindy Moss
01:38:28
@Kim Moore you do an amazing job! The students and teachers need you desperately!

Dr Jackson, Can’t wait to tell my brother and niece how impressive you are! They live in Chicago! [no school age children] My brother has participated as a volunteer teaching reading.
Stacey Ridgeway, Discovery Education
01:38:57
Thank you for sharing your story Chancellor Carranza!
Kim D Moore
01:39:45
Thank you @Cindy! Struggle is real!
Fowzigiah Abdolcader
01:40:13
Our kids can be anything they want, but It will be a lot harder for them.
Fowzigiah Abdolcader
01:40:22
The journey is long.
Cindy Moss
01:40:23
@Kim Moore yes the struggle is real but your are even more real! Keep up the good fight!
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:40:24
Aspire is the first start, but we have to equip our young people with the tools and skills to navigate the realities of our world while continuing to make change. So true, @Jaime
Brie Messier
01:40:30
Where do you suggest people start having courageous conversations? How can the average person help lead the way.
Julia Tatsch
01:40:48
Yes same question
Cindy Moss
01:40:48
You can’t be what you can’t see! The students NEED to see you!

Snehal Bhakta
01:41:36
Let’s get the hashtag trending… #ILiketheLittlePeopleMore
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:41:38
I think the challenge is how to “foster the desire” when so many situations can douse the fire before it even has a moment to start.
Cindy Moss
01:41:43
STEM teaching and learning can provide students with problem solving skills that will provide them with a good future. We need to show them they can be successful and happy in the STEM pipeline!
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:41:54
My parents told me I can be anything and I believed them. The part that has to be added in if you are POC is “but “you have to be above average and better than good. You must be excellent”.
Anna-Marie Booth
01:41:55
Students must have positive interactions with adults who “look like them” in order to have a positive impact on their views.
Joshua Bornstein
01:41:58
White folks in the chat: When will your next attempt be to disrupt whiteness in school policies and practices?
Julia Tatsch
01:42:08
Tomorrow!
Cindy Moss
01:42:19
Go Julia Tatsch!
Julia Tatsch
01:42:25
I have a huge meeting to pitch forward movement and I don’t want to screw it up!
Dave Hankin
01:42:27
Student empowerment!!
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:42:27
You can be what you can’t see b/c I’ve done it. I disagree with that.
Kim D Moore
01:42:27
Exposing students to leaders of color is very important.
Snehal Bhakta
01:42:38
Key point - many education taskforce/committee lack teachers and students voices when considering and making decision especially around equity and opening the schools
Jennifer
01:42:43
Dr. Jackson, so impressed!!! Please provide the link to student code of conduct and disciplinary policies.
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:42:52
A lot of us have but it’s the access that’s needed to provide support during the pursuit.
Joshua Bornstein
01:43:00
When, what and where will we do that work on exposing/disrupting whiteness?
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:43:07
That’s a challenging concept….”give them a seat at the table” still reinforces a power notion. How can we help those communities build their table and then we go to their table?
MaryJo Rosania-Harvie, AP Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts
01:43:25
can someone repost the student bill of rights that was posted? The link would not work for me. I would appreciate it, thank you!
Fowzigiah Abdolcader
01:43:27
You can be what you can’t see. There will always need to be people who are willing to be trailblazers, lead the way even when it doesn’t exist.

Courageous and transformative leadership is needed like our panelists today.
MaryJo Rosania-Harvie, AP Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts
01:44:53
thank you!!
Donna Drakeford
01:44:57
@DrJanice…its great that the employees can state the vision…do the students and the parents see themselves in the vision
Joshua Bornstein
01:45:03
And we need some folks to give up the seats they already have at the table to make room for folks who have been kept at the margins.
Snehal Bhakta
01:45:06
@Molly Hi to you as well!
Stephanie Workman
01:45:08
transparency, holding each other accountable, being open with the community. Thank you, Dr Jackson!
robert corbin
01:45:11
YES! Love the community connection piece. Imperative. Member Checking is hard work but critically important.
Julia Tatsch
01:45:45
But if it’s not there, how to we help our leaders BE courageous?
Joshua Bornstein
01:45:50
Panelists: Who needs to get out of the way in your district so that others can get to the table?

Thanks to all our panelists for demonstrating authentic, humble leadership. So inspiring.
Keishla Ceaser-Jones
01:45:51
So amazing to care about the 100%!
Cindy Moss
01:45:55
Great advice to work on not being defensive and not buy your own hype!
Donna Drakeford
01:45:59
@DrJanice…if so how do you achieve that so they can speak to how is supports them
Dr. Janice K. Jackson, Superintendent, Chicago Public Schools IL
01:46:19
I think students and parents are aware of it but cannot yet speak to it. We have hosted countless town halls and engaged about 8K families this year (down a bot due to COVID). But it is a process. We did have parent and student focus groups weigh in. But not everyone one by a long shot.
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:46:34
Intentional Action do the work you present in the pretty PowerPoints. It’s about action!
Donna Drakeford
01:46:46
@Dr Janice…thank you

In 1980 I did a summer internship with Jerry Brown in Sacramento. The CA legislature was studying the 4th grade reading scores and used those to predict how many people would be in jail in 20 years. I asked them why they didn’t spend more money in school fixing the problems before jail? They responded that jails are big business
robert corbin
01:54:22
Boom! Love this point. And the costs are not just monetary when we incarcerate. Devastating societally, emotionally, foundationally.
Cassandra R. Farley Martin
01:54:37
Agreed @ Donna
Ellen Metzger
01:54:49
Wow, there is a report in USNews https://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/data-mine/2014/12/09/what-youth-incarceration-costs-taxpayers

We talk a great deal about the "new normal", however, I want to emphasize the neglect that the "old normal" did to many of our students of color.
