Being a high school principal can be an isolating position. Even though other capable administrators, teachers, and staff are part of the team, the sole authority is on you to lead your building. Connecting with other principals who have similar experiences offers an opportunity to harness the collective intelligence, defining and sharing strengths to address the challenges and opportunities we face.

These eight facilitated meetings will provide that forum for sharing challenges, successes, solutions, and best practices and provide opportunities to collaborate with colleagues to enhance professional growth and networking. Topics for learning and discussion may include: equity, distance learning, trauma-informed practices, matters of curriculum and instruction, and specific topics of interest generated by the group.

Sign up on MLP for each meeting individually. All meetings are from 8:30 to 9:30 on the 2nd Friday of each month on the Zoom platform (link will be shared prior to the first meeting with registered participants). NOTE: If conditions permit, the March and May meetings may shift to in-person or site visits depending on group interest.

13. Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education & Family Engagement

Program: Regional Partnership Center

Dates: 5/20/2021

Meeting Times: Thurs, 5/20/21 4:00-6:00

Research shows there are groups in our own communities and throughout New York State whose voices have gone unheard and whose needs have gone unmet in the classroom. Race, gender, disability, income level, and other factors can often predict the extent to which a student receives resources that facilitate academic success. Educational spaces are not culturally neutral; by default, they reproduce the inequities that we see in greater society. NYSED's Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CR-SE) framework aims to intentionally address these inequities by requiring educators to center marginalized and oppressed voices, affirm student experiences, and support students in achieving their goals for success. "By making all cultures matter, our students' cultures can be positioned as strengths and as the foundation of empowering, rigorous, and innovative learning.” This workshop is designed to introduce educators to concepts of communication and culture that impact the ways educators and educational organizations (EOs) interact with families. Overall, the aim is to ensure that educators are mindful with how they communicate with parents, guardians, and families to ensure that educational sites are culturally responsive and welcoming. Registered participants will receive all relevant links 24 hours before the day of the workshop. After the Live Zoom, participants will and complete all assignments at their own pace and submit all work by 9 pm. Upon completion of all assignments and attendance to the mandatory live Zoom session participants will receive 4 CTLE credits. *If they do not hear from us within 24-hours prior to the workshop, check your spam folder or contact the facilitators at Dagmar.Luciano@DCBOCES.ORG and/or BPoague@WIHD.org

20. Culturally Responsive Forum

Program: Regional Partnership Center

Dates: 5/28/2021

Meeting Times: Friday, 5/28/21 11:00-12:00

For more than a century, education providers throughout the United States have strived and struggled to meet the diverse needs of American children and families. A complex system of biases and structural inequities is at play, deeply rooted in our country's history, culture, and institutions. This system of inequity - which routinely confers advantage and disadvantage based on linguistic background, gender, skin color, and other characteristics - must be clearly understood, directly challenged, and fundamentally transformed. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has come to understand that the results we seek for all our children can never be fully achieved without incorporating an equity and inclusion lens in every facet of our work (see also NYS-ESSA Plan). Culturally responsive-sustaining (CR-S) education is a view of learning and human growth that values differences in culture and identity (e.g., race, social class, gender, language, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, ability) as strengths that should be included in teaching and learning. If you are looking for support on how to begin this work or have questions regarding the systems and practices that are already in place at your school, classroom, or district please join this one hour forum where you can bring your questions and or concerns about Equity and Culturally Responsive teaching practices and receive feedback from the RPC's Culturally Responsive Educator Specialist. Participants will receive one hour CTLE credit for attending. Thank you for your interest in Equity and Culturally Responsive teaching. I look forward to speaking to you more at the forum.

Title: Concrete Rose

Author: Angie Thomas

Book Jacket Summary: If there's one thing seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter knows, it's that a real man takes care of his family. As the son of a former gang legend, Mav does that the only way he knows how: dealing for the King Lords. With this money he can help his mom, who works two jobs while his dad's in prison. Life's not perfect, but with a fly girlfriend and a cousin who always has his back, Mav's got everything under control.

Until, that is, Maverick finds out he's a father.

Suddenly he has a baby, Seven, who depends on him for everything. But it's not so easy to sling dope, finish school, and raise a child. So when he's offered the chance to go straight, he takes it. In a world where he's expected to amount to nothing, maybe Mav can prove he's different.

When King Lord blood runs through your veins, though, you can't just walk away. Loyalty, revenge, and responsibility threaten to tear Mav apart, especially after the brutal murder of a loved one. He'll have to figure out for himself what it really means to be a man.

39. Curriculum Audit for Equitable Learning Experiences

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: curriculum developers, teachers, administrators

Dates: 6/29/2021 to 7/1/2021

This session is intended for each district to send a team of 5 that will lead the curriculum work throughout the summer.

Participants will begin the review of their current curriculum by examining who has benefitted from the curriculum and whose needs have not been met. Participants will then unpack each of the following research-based criteria for equitable learning to determine how they are addressed in their current curriculum.
1. Curriculum and instruction honors students' cultural and experiential backgrounds and builds off their strengths and interests (Bryan-Gooden, Hester, & Peoples, 2019; Ladson-Billings, 2014; Saavedra & Nolan, 2018; Smith, Frey, Pumpian, & Fisher, 2017).
2. Students have access to and are held to high expectations (Hammond, 2015; Ladson-Billings, 2014; Smith et al., 2017).
3. Students engage in authentic experiences that develop relationships and build human and social capital and civic equity (Bryan-Gooden et al., 2019; Hammond, 2015; Ladson-Billings, 2014; Smith et al., 2017).
4. Students engage in their learning (Baker et al., 2014; Hammond, 2015; Ladson-Billings, 2014; Saavedra & Nolan, 2018; Smith et al., 2017).
5. Students become independent and self-regulated learners (Hammond, 2015; Smith et al., 2017).

Participants will use the results of their review to determine short and long-term actionable steps for addressing the needs that emerge.

If districts plan to continue with the design program teams should consist of teachers and/or administrators willing to serve as leads during the design programs and should have a specific content area and or grade level band for the focus of their review e.g. elementary, middle/high school math, high school ELA/Social Studies.
