Thursday, March 11 Building a Student Support Network - 7-8:30pm

School safety and supporting students in staying connected with school and learning opportunities are integrally related. Restorative justice practices appear to be most promising for reducing school-wide reliance on suspension and expulsion, and for reducing racial/ethnic disparities in school discipline. By choosing a different course, all young people, including those most marginalized, can be safe and engaged in their schools and communities.

May 13 Designing an Anti-Racism Curriculum - 7-9pm

In this webinar, we will explore the possibilities and limitations of developing an anti-racism curriculum in Sarasota. The Florida Legislature has mandated the teaching of African and African American History [F.S. 233.061 Sec. (1) (G) (1994) as amended by F.S. 1003.42 (h) (2002)] . Additionally, local community organizations such as Newtown Alive have documented local African American history and/or created resources that can be incorporated into the curriculum.
