Pinellas County Schools Tackles Diversity with Hanover Research

Pinellas County Schools sought a tailored research program to inform ongoing work to eliminate the gaps between minority and non-minority student outcomes.

The Challenge: Develop a Plan to Address Student Outcome Gaps

Pinellas County Schools (Pinellas) is the public school district serving Pinellas County, Florida. With more than 100,000 students served in more than 140 schools and centers, the district is the seventh-largest in Florida and 26th-largest in the nation. As part of the district’s ongoing work to eliminate the gaps between minority and non-minority student outcomes, the district sought a tailored research program to inform strategic decision-making.


The Solution: Strategic Diversity and Equity Recommendations

Hanover designed a strategic research program to help tackle diversity challenges as they manifest in how teachers, administrators, and students engage with one another.

The Outcome: An Insightful Plan to Track Key Metrics Over the Next Four Years

Hanover identified new classroom cultural competency practices, best practices for diversity in educator recruiting, and equitable discipline implementation details that can help Pinellas craft a robust diversity strategy.
