Program: Curriculum Instruction and Prof Dev

Dates: 8/30/2021

Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES is pleased to have Erin Merryn, the namesake for Erin's Law, provide a Keynote address to our region, virtually. Erin Merryn shares her story of surviving child sexual abuse for 6 years of her childhood. Beginning at the age of 6, at a sleepover, Erin was threatened not to tell anyone. Her abuse continued until 8-1/2 when her family moved, but moving just got her that much closer to the next abuser in her life - this time a family member. Erin shares how these men silenced her and how she finally broke her silence and was brought to a Children's Advocacy Center. Erin credits the children's advocacy center as the place that laid the foundation in her healing. It was there that she reclaimed her voice as a 13-year-old and she and her family received the services they needed. Erin shares her family's journey of healing after breaking her silence and deciding to eventually forgive and do something positive out of tragedy.

Following the Keynote address there will be an in-person, interactive panel discussion that will serve as an opportunity to explore NYS Erin's law, any NYS updates, best practices, Monique Burr Foundation programs and how they align with Erin's Law, Bivona Child Advocacy's role in helping the community address sexual abuse and Erin's law.

Day 4: Fixing Off-Grade-Level Gaps with Small-Group Interventions. At-risk students with off-grade-level skill gaps need targeted, small-group, high-quality academic interventions to catch up with peers.

Day 5: Creating Individual Support Plans: MTSS ProblemSolving Team. The MTSS Problem-Solving Team (‘MTSS Team') is a crucial component of a school's MTSS process, as it develops individualized intervention plans for students with the most intensive academic and behavioral challenges.

Jim Wright, the presenter, is a national trainer and consultant to schools and organizations on Response to Intervention/Multi-Tier System of Supports and topics relating to educational change and at- risk learners.

Audience: K-12 Regular and Special Education/ENL Teachers, Paraprofessionals, Social Workers, Psychologist, and School Counselors

Dates: 10/13/2021 to 2/2/2022

This is a 6 full-day in person CR-S education training.

The sessions will be co-facilitated with 4 individuals from districts who have already been trained to build their competency and capacity in executing the Culturally Responsive Sustaining (CR-S) education training. The CR-SE co-facilitation team will co-facilitate the CR-S education content, in which an NYU Metro Center IESC associate will coach CR-SE co-facilitators before each upcoming session, co-present during the sessions, and observe district CR-SE trainers. After the session, feedback will be offered to the CR-SE co-facilitators. This session will to help educators shift deficit thinking mindsets, specifically focusing on how race, identity, power, and privilege create education barriers that have historically created educational inequities for marginalized children and families. The CR-S education series supports the development of educators' ability to use race and culture to improve educational outcomes (Howard, 2010) and supports educators' engagement in a process of self-transformation in order to ensure equitable outcomes for every student (Banks, 2007). In this session, we will explore how microaggression, stereotype threat, and risk and protective factors are central in considering the role that schools have in creating welcoming, affirming, and validating environments, inclusive curriculum and rigorous instruction that mitigate vulnerability.

Session 5 and 6 will focus on identifying CR-S education school and classroom practices, developing competency around using the CRE Toolkit (CRE Curriculum Audit, CR-SE problem solving teams, CR-SE classroom tool), and developing district/school level Guardians of Equity teams.

100. Culturally Responsive Sustaining Education - 4th Cohort

Program: Curriculum Instruction and Prof Dev

Audience: K-12 Regular and Special Education/ENL Teachers, Paraprofessionals, Social Workers, Psychologist, and School Counselors

Dates: 11/18/2021 to 3/9/2022

This is a 6 full-day in person CR-S education training.

The sessions will be co-facilitated with 4 individuals from districts who have already been trained to build their competency and capacity in executing the Culturally Responsive Sustaining (CR-S) education training. The CR-SE co-facilitation team will co-facilitate the CR-S education content, in which an NYU Metro Center IESC associate will coach CR-SE co-facilitators before each upcoming session, co-present during the sessions, and observe district CR-SE trainers. After the session, feedback will be offered to the CR-SE co-facilitators. This session will to help educators shift deficit thinking mindsets, specifically focusing on how race, identity, power, and privilege create education barriers that have historically created educational inequities for marginalized children and families. The CR-S education series supports the development of educators' ability to use race and culture to improve educational outcomes (Howard, 2010) and supports educators' engagement in a process of self-transformation in order to ensure equitable outcomes for every student (Banks, 2007). In this session, we will explore how microaggression, stereotype threat, and risk and protective factors are central in considering the role that schools have in creating welcoming, affirming, and validating environments, inclusive curriculum and rigorous instruction that mitigate vulnerability.

Session 5 and 6 will focus on identifying CR-S education school and classroom practices, developing competency around using the CRE Toolkit (CRE Curriculum Audit, CR-SE problem solving teams, CR-SE classroom tool), and developing district/school level Guardians of Equity teams.
