Soluciones – Empowering Hispanic & Latino Students

Austin, Texas | July 13–15, 2022
  • $689.00 per person for teams of 5 or more

Be the difference our Hispanic and Latino students   need

English learners (ELs) come to school with diverse talents, experiences, emotional needs, and levels of family support. Now after a school year of closures and disruptions, the learning gap for many of our ELs has widened. Join us at Soluciones to empower your leaders, teachers, parents, and community partners to champion academic recovery and achievement among this ever-growing student population.

Top educational thought leaders share specific, practical ways to connect with students from diverse backgrounds, ensure they feel safe and welcome, and help them overcome the barriers they often face. This conference includes a unique combination of research-based strategies and practices you can use right away as well as the schoolwide knowledge and tools that will be essential to develop an actionable plan for serving ELs that creates a level playing field where they can excel.

  • Create a holistic shift in how your school supports ELs.
  • Learn practical strategies that can be used daily to increase EL engagement.
  • Develop a toolkit of strategies for working with SLIFE (students with limited or interrupted formal education).
  • Determine how to effectively build relationships with Hispanic and Latino students and parents.
  • Acquire district and building leadership practices that work to achieve equity and eliminate the achievement gap.
  • Gain targeted instructional strategies and assessment processes to develop academic vocabulary, literacy, and math skills for English learners.

  • Gather and use critical feedback from students to inform and improve class structure, communication, and behavior.
  • Learn how to involve students in discussions centered on rich vocabulary.
