Community Schools 101 for School Building Leaders: Supporting the CSD to Encourage Your School’s Growth
Peter Tinguely, CSTAC-NYC
The Community School Director is a unique position within a school community. When empowered and given the necessary tools, the CSD can push your school’s supportive structures and systems to new heights. Understanding the full scope of what the CSD position can be is essential to knowing how you can bolster the role. In this session, we will explore the ways in which school building leaders can best support their CSD for maximum benefit to the school community.
Session Two: Wednesday, October 19, 9:30 – 10:45 AM
Building a Culturally Responsive Community School: Inclusive Strategies for School Building Leaders
Kevin Coyne, CSTAC-NYC
The school building leader plays the most pivotal role in cultivating a culturally responsive school environment. In this session, school building leaders will learn research-based practical strategies for building a culturally responsive community school, including approaches that specifically focus on the needs of various identity groups. All strategies are fully aligned with the NYSED Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework.
Session Three: Thursday, October 20, 9:30 – 10:45 AM
Leading a Community School: Shifting From Languishing to Flourishing
Sara Steinweiss, Conflict Resolution Systems
Building on the effective strategies introduced during the previous sessions, Sara Steinweiss will share practical, implementable tools for successfully transitioning our staff and students from a languishing state of mind and provide tools of replenishment and sustainability so they may flourish in the upcoming school year and ensure that leaders are understanding the needs o of the school staff, students and community.
All mindfulness activities will be led by Ghylian Bell of Urban Yoga Foundation.
Supplemental materials, including presenter biographies, supporting articles, and post-session surveys, will be distributed digitally after each session is complete. All workshops will be available for on-demand viewing following the completion of the Regional Conference.
