Reimagining the Learning Experience Where Black Minds Matters
Presented by: The State of Black Learning

Historically, education has been seen as a ‘one size fits all’ system for students. Research shows this is not the case with Black students. Whether considering a child’s home life or integrating a learning strategy to enhance student engagement, it is essential to hone in on the ways in which educators interact with and teach Black students. The State of Black Learning (SBL), instituted in 2018, is designed to increase educator effectiveness and provide the tools necessary to help participants address all of the factors that improve student outcomes and help Black children learn.

PCPCS is proud to join with SBL to present this session. The aim is to use insightful analysis, commentary, and facilitated dialogue on best practices to help  participants critically discuss how systemic inequities in race, gender, and socioeconomic status continue to shape and impact learning for Black children.
It is our hope this shared wisdom and experience will provide insight and serve as a reference to others who are working to ensure all Black students receive a high quality education within a supportive and caring learning environment.

Coming to America: The EL Experience in the 21st Century

Presented by: Patricia A. Hennessy, Esquire, Conrad O’Brien

Since 1974 and the United States Supreme Court decision in Lau v. Nichols, public educators should understand that EL students if they cannot understand what is being taught – are not being provided with an equal education. Presenters will discuss the how and whys of true and successful implementation – equality means meaningful engagement and interventions which includes culturally responsive measures, socio-emotional supports, along with acquisition goals across all academic subjects. There will also be a discussion regarding the provision of equity with the EL population in a cyber environment. Presenters will provide participants with the legal framework which informs compliance with EL mandates including Office of Civil Rights guidances, the Equal Educational Opportunity Act, Title III, the Every Student Succeeds Act, etc. Finally, the presenters will discuss how the ever-evolving dialogue on immigration EL students and their families in terms of adverse consequences and how schools can be student-centered in terms of resources and response.
