 Newcomers; who are they and how do we support them? Newcomers are a highly heterogeneous group and their numbers are growing.

This interactive professional learning opportunity is designed to help elementary and secondary teachers, principals, and other school staff achieve the following:

  • Expand and strengthen opportunities for cultural and linguistic integration and education
  • Understand some basics about their legal obligations to newcomers
  • Provide welcoming schools and classrooms for newcomers and their families
  • Provide newcomers with the academic support to attain English language proficiency (if needed) and to meet college– and career–readiness standards
  • Support and develop newcomers’ social emotional skills
