  • California Students in Cybersecurity Career Pathways and Apprenticeships Presentation by Dr. Keith Clement
    10:00 am-12:00 pm
    September 11, 2020
    On 9/11/2001 the United States suffered a surprise attack that left massive civilian deaths due to a lack of awareness and readiness that left the United States vulnerable. On the anniversary of this event, we should all be thinking about current vulnerability to another type of attack, cyber hacking, that could cause wide-spread damage to our critical infrastructure, livelihoods, and national security due to the fact that there are not enough trained cybersecurity workers to fill open positions in public and private sector jobs. Governor Brown convened a State Cybersecurity Task Force to address the vulnerability to cyber-attack in California and focus on cyber workforce development as a key part of that work. On Friday, September 11 at 10:00 a.m. PT join Dr. Clement who has been leading a coordinated approach to the workforce shortage for an update from the California Cybersecurity Task Force, co-chaired by the California Department of Technology (CDT) and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES).

  • Kick-off: A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Resources and guidance to support Black, LatinX, and Multilingual students to thrive in grades 6-8
    4:00 pm-5:00 pm
    September 22, 2020
    Hosted by: The Education Trust–West

    A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction is an integrated approach to mathematics centering Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students in grades 6-8, by addressing barriers to math equity, and aligning instruction to grade-level priority standards. The Pathway is designed to offer guidance and resources for educators as they plan their curriculum, while also offering opportunities for ongoing self-reflection as they seek to develop an anti-racist math practice. The toolkit “strides” serve as multiple on-ramps for educators as they navigate the individual and collective journey from equity to anti-racism.

    Recognizing the importance of helping educators to identify essential content for the 2020-21 school year, our team used Student Achievement Partners’ Instructional Priority Content in Mathematics as a foundational guide for sharpening our content focus (the “what”) for this toolkit. We also recognized that educators need support in shifting their instructional practices (the “how”) to provide meaningful access to priority content while ensuring that those practices are research- and assets-based, and culturally responsive.

    We invite you to learn more about the toolkit and join us on this Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction.

    About this Toolkit: This toolkit was developed by a team of teachers, instructional coaches, researchers, professional development providers, and curriculum writers with expertise in mathematics education, English language development, and culturally responsive pedagogy.
