SESSION HIGHLIGHTS:

The Majority Report: Supporting the Educational Successes of Latino Students in California

The Education Trust-West

The Education Trust –West discusses its latest report, The Majority Report: Supporting the Educational Success of Latino Students in California, a comprehensive look at the status of California’s Latino students. The report presents a range of extant statewide data from multiple sources, and also incorporates original research and stories from primary first-hand sources, such as interviews with current and former students. The report investigates Latino students’ experiences, from issues affecting early education gaps, through the causes of lower college attainment rates, and the barriers faced as they prepare for, enter, and complete postsecondary education. In addition to identifying problems, the report highlights solutions: practices and policies that have been effective for Latino students, parents, and educators.

Seizing the Opportunity for English Learners in California: The EL Roadmap and Prop 58

Californians Together

With the passage of Proposition 58 with an overwhelming majority and the California State Board of Education approval of the English Learner Roadmap, school board members across California have a great opportunity to align their district's support of English Learners to be systemic, asset-oriented and needs responsive. Attendees will learn about the new opportunities under Proposition 58 and examples of how to use the EL Roadmap to reframe their approach to serving the needs of English Learners.

Creating Sanctuary from the Boardroom to the Classroom

Immediately following the 2016 presidential election, the Oakland Unified School District's (OUSD) Board of Education reaffirmed the district's sanctuary status, assuring that all students attend school free of fear, bullying, and harassment. Attendees will learn the legal authority of sanctuary school policies and how the OUSD Sanctuary Task Force has trained and engaged staff, community, and student leaders to ensure all schools are learning sanctuaries and to do the deeper work of building awareness and solidarity among our many communities.
