Looking in the Mirror: Supporting Economically Disadvantaged Students in Your Schools
November 18, 2019
8:30 a.m.- 12 p.m.
3.5 CTLE hours
WSWHE BOCES, Ballard Road Conference Center
Most our schools have significant numbers of students who are living in poverty. Despite their best intentions, there are often barriers in place that prevent these students from participating fully in their school programs, achieving academically and developing socially and emotionally.
Participants of this workshop will identify the practices, policies and attitudes in place at their schools that are affecting the educational experience for students who are economically disadvantaged. They will learn ways they can make changes to better support students living in poverty to enable them to be successful in school and life. Schools are encouraged to send teams.
