champions newsletterThe Champions for Change Program is launching a monthly newsletter highlighting the activities of this cultural proficiency training program for Lakota staff.  The program, now in its second year, offers staff the skills and strategies they can use in the classroom to better understand potential barriers and partner with families for the best possible outcome for all students.  

In addition to the newsletter, the group is planning a “Train the Trainer” model for the schools as well as book studies around cultural diversity. Click here to see this month’s issue of Champions’ Corner.

A “champion” from every Lakota school and administrative building meets regularly for practical training provided through reading, open dialogue and even expert visitors on topics like cross-cultural communication, understanding poverty and barriers to the achievement gap. These leaders then share their learnings and strategies with the rest of their colleagues, in a format that can be applied to their work.
