Californians Together invites you to attend a convening of school districts and local and statewide education community partners to highlight the results of the report, “Beyond Teaching English: Supporting High School Completion by Immigrant and Refugee Students,” by Julie Sugarman of the Migrant Policy Institute.
School districts across the United States are honing their approaches to help newcomer students meet the challenges they face-from developing processes to identify students’ academic and socioemotional needs, to connecting them with mental-health and legal supports, and tailoring curricular pathways in ways that balance student needs with policy constraints.
We will engage school districts and community partners in an interactive workshop to learn best practices, evaluate their current supports for secondary immigrant students and reflect on how they can better serve this struggling student population.
The following topics will be covered:
- Who are newcomer students?
- Identifying and meeting secondary newcomers’ comprehensive needs
- Design and implementation of instructional programs
- Julie Sugarman, Migrant Policy Institute
- Rowland Unified School District
- Anaheim Union High School District
- Los Angeles Unified School District (invited)
- Oakland Unfied School District
- Glendale Unified School District (invited)
- Ontario-Montclair School District (invited)
Targeted for: Leadership teams from the district, county or school site, teacher leaders, English learner specialists and coordinators, Title I and Title III administrators and specialists, state and local community partners
Registration fee: Free, including a copy of the report, continental breakfast, lunch and parking
