The Michigan Department of Education is offering an extension of the African American Student Initiative (AASI) for any person in an educational setting. This extends to ISD and local district superintendents, superintendent's cabinet members, local school board members, parents/families/caregivers, teachers, principals/leadership, etc.
The Culturally Responsive School Leadership Institute Academy (CRSLIA) will be a unique experience since the academy will allow for everyone to participate regardless of role/reponsibility in the educational setting. Participants will embark on a journey of understanding and uncovering the historical oppression of their community schools; engage in practices of critical self-reflection; and learn the ways that historical epistemologies have influenced current school and community policies and practices that have marginalized minoritized students and families.
