The Community Engagement Initiative Presents:
Developing Learning Continuity and Attendance Plans that Embrace our English Learners: A Focus on Community & Family Engagement
By September 30, districts are responsible for gaining stakeholder input and developing a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) for the 2020-21 school year that addresses the needs of all pupils regarding the impacts of COVID-19, with specific attention to English Learners and increasing or improving EL services. What might a powerful LCP look like for English Learners, that heeds research and builds upon learning from experiences with distance learning last spring and creates deeper partnerships with families? What should educators and communities be thinking about and considering in planning to ensure English Learners are able to recoup learning loss and are not left further behind?
Californians Together staff will present the findings and recommendations from a review of COVID-19 Operations Written Reports. Dr. Laurie Olson will present and share a planning tool to align the LCP with the English Learner Roadmap, emphasizing the opportunities for parent engagement.
Come and learn about the Community Engagement Initiative and how to join Cohort II of our Peer Leading and Learning Networks. Attendees will also learn how to tap into resources and tools developed by Californians Together to support LEAs in developing more inclusive Learning Continuity and Attendance Plans.
