Great Opportunity to learn how Common Core Standards Relate to Afterschool and Summer
by School's Out Washington | | Posted under
School’s Out Washington’s partner Equity in Education Coalition is hosting their second Common Core Training, happening on Thursday, May 28, 2015 from 9 am – 12:30 pm in Tacoma. The purpose of the event is to better understand the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), provide opportunities to practice CCSS skills, and much more.
The Equity in Education Coalition (EEC) is a state wide coalition that is looking at a more targeted and comprehensive approach to improve educational achievement and growth as well as closing the opportunity and achievement gap throughout the State of Washington. As a coalition representative of communities of color and low-income communities, the EEC is taking a strategic approach to closing the opportunity and achievement gap that takes into account the effects of race, homelessness, racial and institutional discrimination, children and parents whose first language is not English, poverty, and family instability.
The EEC is offering this training in an effort to create a network of community based organizations (CBOs) working with communities of color, low-income and special education, connect the CBOs with local teachers and educational professionals already working on Common Core within the school building and training community based organization staff on Common Core so that they, in turn, pass the information on to the students, families and communities they serve.
