Elements of Equitable Partnerships (Graphic)

A definition of Equitable Partnerships, drawing on the work of King County Best Starts for Kids, PSESD, and YDEKC.

This graphic illustrates how Leadership & Coordination, Shared Vision, Implementation, and Mutual Accountability merge into synergy that leads to changes in school climate and environment; practice, policy, & system changes; and ultimately, improved whole child outcomes.

For ideas on what practices support these partnerships, check out this Shared Vision & Leadership Checklist; Aligned, Responsive Implementation Checklist; and Shared Accountability Checklist.
