Cultural Competency at Sylvania Schools

. December 29, 2016.

Sylvania teachers, administrators, support staff and board members recently had a Cultural Competency training to examine the diversity within the school district and to determine a plan to meet the needs of all students, regardless of race, religion, culture or socio-economic background.

Through this program, developed by the National Education Association, facilitators from across the country assisted Sylvania Schools in addressing the new Federal Education Law; the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Calls for input from multiple stakeholders in forming a plan for educating students.

The group will also be planning a community forum this Spring, to engage parents and community members.
