CUBE District Workshop Notes

Board members of like-sized districts meet to discuss issues pertinent to urban districts, and the ways in which their respective urban school districts are responding.

  • Small-size urban districts (less than 30,000)
  • Mid-size urban districts (less than 60,000)
  • Large-size urban districts (more than 60,000)

Envisioning Parental Engagement in Urban Schools

Parent involvement has increasingly been mandated as a key component of school reform, and school community relations courses (as well as standards for administrators) call for collaborating with diverse families and communities. Yet the role of school leaders in engaging parents is underdeveloped in the literature and in preparation programs. How do leaders envision parent engagement and construct their role in promoting it in urban school districts? What contextual factors enable and constrain leadership for parent engagement?

Why Race & Culture Matters

In this interactive session, Dr. Tyrone Howard outlines data that demonstrates the role race and culture continue to have on the educational outcomes of students in urban schools. Drawing from years of research identifying best practices and effective programs, this session will highlight meaningful strategies and approaches to facilitate teaching and learning across racial and cultural lines.

Presenter: Dr. Tyrone Howard, Professor of Education, UCLA
