Description: Since 2020, Highlander Institute has piloted several new partnerships activating community educators, substitute teachers, and paraprofessionals. We’ve learned about the entrenched challenges districts face related to human capital and recommended ways for leaders to take a more active role in the design of new staffing models. In this session, learn how we’re centering the experiences of students and community members to support SEL and academic growth both inside and outside of school systems.
