Description

In Field Guide #12: Rebounding from Unfinished Teaching and Learning (the “Learning Loss”), we aim to guide school district decision-making and resource allocations in such a manner that all students and especially African American students and students from other communities of color will indeed rebound rapidly from the learning loss that resulted from the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.

Community Engagement Initiative: Lessons Learned So Far

DESCRIPTION

This session highlights the high impact school governance has on culturally responsive efforts of districts that are participating in the Community Engagement Initiative, and how their participation has led to them building trusting relationships, effective partnership structures that require district teams (comprised of various educational partners) to develop a sustainable community engagement system and in turn allowing them to have difficult conversations and more meaningful engagement in the LCAP process and in supporting the success of their students.

California Statewide System of Support for Governance Teams

DESCRIPTION

Serving the needs of our children and youth is the top priority for the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence. With so many demands at the local level, it can be challenging for Governance teams to know how to align initiatives and identify the support that may be needed by administrators, teachers, and most importantly the students. This presentation provides an overview of California‘s Statewide System of Support (52074) and better understand the services and supports that are available to support districts. Utilizing the many resources created by state, regional and local agencies, Governance teams can build capacity, and improve collaboration with educational and community partners to improve outcomes for our students and their families.
