The Office of Equity and Access (OEA) is proud to present educational series entitled “Culturally Responsive Education: Equity, Excellence and Cultural Responsiveness.” This will be the first in a four-part educational series that will be used to show the importance of using Culturally Responsive Education as a comprehensive tool to connect awareness of sensitive, relevant practices and principles to students’ academic and social achievement. Each symposium will also provide participants with a multitude of academic and cultural strategies that can be implemented to advance the equitable outcomes of students. By registering for this event, your school will be eligible to participate in the Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) program which will focus on increasing the understanding of historically-underserved and systematically marginalized students in order to help reduce the opportunity gap by addressing the options students have; connecting cultural responsive awareness to students’ academic and social achievement, and engaging the participating staff in reflective and courageous conversations about race, stereotypes, and equity. This initiative will aim to show the direct correlation between the importance of high-quality, developmentally and culturally appropriate instruction to students’ non-cognitive and cognitive success. All schools registering for this event will be expected to bring a minimum of a team of 5 per school. The team should include, but not limited to, 1 administrator, 2 staff members (i.e. teachers, guidance counselors), and schools are encouraged to bring 2 students.
