Professional learning continues to be a high priority for Region 6. We welcome your ideas and suggestions in order to provide high quality and relevant opportunities for our members. For almost two years, we have offered professional learning events virtually due to the ongoing pandemic and at no cost to members and non-members thanks to our partners. For the 2021-22 school year, we are planning both virtual and in-person events to meet the current needs of our members. If you would like to be involved in planning professional development in Region 6, contact our Vice President of Staff Development, ">Lorianne Ventura.

Implementing Ethnic Studies Through a Critical Consciousness

Region 6 Presents: LESMC Administrator Institute

Wednesday, October 20, 2021 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm

With the passage of Assembly Bill 101 and an Ethnic Studies graduation requirement now a reality, it is incumbent on anti-racist administrators to understand the origins, need, and fight for Ethnic Studies. The Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum Coalition (LESMC) will challenge attendees in activating a critical consciousness when implementing Ethnic Studies in their schools and districts. We will discuss strategies for implementation that keeps the guiding principles of Ethnic Studies at the center.
For more information, contact Tracie Noriega, R6 President-Elect and Equity Chair
