Schools across Connecticut are becoming more and more diverse. By maintaining open dialogue with all families, educators can better understand the short- and long-term goals that culturally diverse families have for their children. Frequent communication creates an environment in which educators and families work together to help achieve equity in education.
This workshop is part of a four-day series designed for educators and families, as well as community leaders, faith-based leaders, and policy makers who want to actively address educational disparities and eliminate inequities. The sessions focus on specific strategies and activities that promote culturally relevant family engagement and create stronger partnerships between home and school. If requested, participants can take advantage of follow-up supports or on-site technical assistance for an additional fee. More information will be available at the sessions.
Participants are welcome to register for any or all of the four sessions. Session One (10/30/13): “Culturally Relevant Family Engagement”; Session Two (1/22/14): “Cultural Perspectives on Disability”; Session Three (5/8/14): “Inter- and Intra-cultural Communication between Educators, Families and Communities”; and Session Four (5/29/14): “Dynamic Dedicated Dads.”
