Dual Language Leadership Toolbox: Creating a Culture of Multilingualism

1:40 - 2:50pm EDT
Presented at: OSSE EL Summer Symposium

Providing effective school leadership in multilingual settings comes with its own unique set of challenges and rewards. Participants will engage in meaningful discussion surrounding hot-button issues in bilingual program leadership at the school level and explore research-validated tools designed specifically to guide and support leaders in effective bilingual program implementation. Topics of focus include leveraging family and community support, and promoting collaboration and shared ownership among school staff. Participants will explore practical tools and flexible strategies, and will collaborate with colleagues to draft an action plan for immediate use in their own school contexts.
