Learning how to best support Native students
As the League of Education Voters Field and Policy teams reached out to students, parents, community leaders, and partners across Washington state to create our 2022 legislative platform, we heard over and over again the need for student supports. Mental health supports and addressing social-emotional wellness topped the list, as well as building safe, inclusive, and welcoming learning communities for every Washington student.
To that aspiration, we spoke with 2022 Washington state Teacher of the Year Jerad Koepp about supporting the needs of Native students, hosted a LEVinar last month on the role of K-12 schools in addressing racism, and we will present a LEVinar next month focused on honoring and supporting Native students.
Also, watch for our 2022 legislative platform coming next week.
