EPIC is pleased to welcome three new board members to our organization. As our work with school and district leadership teams continues to grow, we need board members who share our vision that it’s not just the content, but the context and a growth mindset that will prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities. Our newly expanded board includes individuals who have worked in schools and districts and can help us contextualize our work within their own experiences and help us focus our language and stories as we empower educators to embrace a renewed vision of student readiness.
We look forward to collaborating with these outstanding individuals in the coming years to incorporate their expertise into our work with our partners.
