Mission & Philosophy

  • SoCal POCIS pursues its mission by gauging the needs of our independent school members and assessing¬†best practices for fulfilling them.¬† We use this information and the latest pedagogical research to advance our educational programs, seminars, and conferences. These efforts further our quest to present innovative approaches and advance recommendations from thought-leaders furthering diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice to our member schools.
