About the Event
The Statewide Tribal Community and School Liaison event is a forum for Home School/Title VI Indian Education/Johnson O'Malley Coordinators and Program Staff from around the state of Wisconsin to engage in discussion, collaborate, and develop a network of support.
This event will provide learning opportunities and topics which were identified by participants who attended regional trainings held in Tomah, Ashland, and Shawano. Speakers will share information on best practices, research, various initiatives on programming taking place throughout the state of Wisconsin.
Participants will have an opportunity to build knowledge/skills that will assist them in implementing best practices within their respective programs in order to cultivate culturally responsive learning environments. In addition, resources and materials will be shared.
As a result of participating in this statewide training, participants will:
Receive valuable skills, knowledge, and insight to support their work as coordinators and staff in American Indian education.
Hear a variety of stories and work experiences from participants in various American Indian education programs.
Collaborate with individuals in similar positions to share best practices, ideas, and research on programming.
Discover and examine ways to transform our school environments for American Indian students, families, communities, and nations.
