  • Wednesday, September 6, 2023
  • 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET

U.S. schools are critical institutions for supporting all types of newcomers to the United States. ‘Newcomers’ refers to K-12 students born outside the U.S. who have arrived in the country in the last three years and are still learning English. Newcomer students and their families are also learning how to adjust to the U.S. education system. In this webinar, speakers will highlight several new resources including the U.S. Department of Education’s recently updated Newcomer Toolkit, which helps educators support newcomers and their families in and out of the classroom. Our speakers will discuss their own lived experience as newcomers and present the latest data trends. The webinar will also feature a robust panel discussion with experts from around the country discussing the tools, strategies, and best practice examples they use to meet the needs of newcomers and help them build the skills needed to thrive socially, emotionally, and academically.
