School Boards Institute

RESCHEDULED EVENT! April 26th. Deadline to register is Tuesday April 11th, 2017. 

Understanding the Effects of Poverty on our School and Community

The Catskill Area School Study Council is pleased to partner with Mr. Dave Potter of the Catskill Regional Teacher Center to offer a poverty simulation experience as our Spring 2017 School Board Institute. Area school districts are faced with the realities of how to meet the educational and social-emotional needs of children and families living in poverty in our region.  Many local districts have already hosted, or have plans to host, the poverty simulator at their school districts so that teachers, staff and other educators can begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month.  We hope you will join us for this important School Board Institute.
