How Schools and Communities Can Support Immigrant Students and Families

How can schools best support their diverse populations of K-12 immigrant students in today’s climate? Hear from a panel of award-winning educators on topics such as creating a welcoming environment for immigrant students and families; providing staff training; addressing questions and concerns about immigration enforcement; strengthening community partnerships; considerations for young children; providing social and emotional support for students and staff; and steps that school/district leaders can take on behalf of immigrant families. Participants will also learn about resources from the nation's leading ELL website, Colorín Colorado, including its new guide on how schools and early childhood centers can support immigrant students.
