National Comprehensive Center’s Native Education Collaborative is excited to present Circles of Reflection: A Toolkit for SEAs.

Circles of Reflection is an engaging process that unites a state education agency (SEA) with local education agencies (LEAs) and Tribes for reflective and meaningful conversations about Native education. By forming strong partnerships, SEAs can lead with equity, allowing all voices to be heard, and ensure they’re doing the most for Native students’ academic and personal well-being
