Happy almost summer! We are looking forward to seeing you in June as we focus on diversity together. We are excited about the many learning opportunities that will be waiting for you during the St. Louis Summer Symposium: Focus on Diversity. On the first day, is Jo Gusman presenting “State Standards and The Diverse Learner” and day two is Beyond Core Expectations: A School-Wide Framework for Serving the Not-So-Common-Learner with Dr. Maria Dove and Dr. Andrea Honigsfeld. On the third day, we have Theresa Roberts from California State University presenting on literacy for pre-K-2 diverse learners as well as many breakout sessions on topics such as SPED & ELL, DRDP, WIDA standards, family engagement, legal responsibilities and culturally and linguistically responsive instruction. Can’t wait to see you there!
