- Innovative strategies for addressing district-school organizational and instructional issues, and student underachievement.
- Leadership learning opportunities for middle and high school students of color.
- Enhanced recruitment of administrators and teachers of color.
- Support in the development and implementation of equity-informed district strategic plans.
- Sharing of leadership and learning experiences.
- Regular, active collaboration with other consortium districts to examine policies and share promising practices.
The DVCEE also hosts promising practices forums, along with leadership institutes, all designed to increase knowledge, skills, and learning with respect to the increasingly diverse populations that are being served in Greater Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York schools.
Twice per year, the DVCEE also hosts student leadership forums, where students from both the middle school and high school levels have the opportunity to come together to discuss issues they see as emerging in their schools.The district also posts job opportunities on DVCEE's website which is available here.
