What is EQ by Design?

We a team of educators and practitioners that believe that equitable practices must be systemic and woven into the very fabric of schools. Our team has a wide array of experiences in the juvenile justice system, prison system, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and higher education. EQ, our company name, means "emotional quotient," which is simply described as "emotional intelligence." We believe that schools must equip students with skills and opportunities to foster emotional intelligence to prepare students for an ever-evolving society. Students must be empowered through student choice, voice, and agency to foster belonging and maximize success. 

Tailored Implementation

Whole Child Approach

Help all students succeed through learning environments that incorporate restorative practices, trauma-informed practices, neuroscience, and authentic social-emotional learning.

Data-Informed Planning

Students are more than numbers. Learn how we use data to inform progress, but also incorporate human intuition to strategize ways to continually improve the student and staff experience.
