With ever-increasing diversity in schools and communities around the country, the need to create educational access and opportunity for every student has never been greater. Promoting cultural proficiency is an effective approach that provides the insights and tools to effectively create communities of inclusion in our schools and to boost the achievement of all students.
CAL's Communities of Inclusion Approach was developed by our subject matter experts based on decades of connecting research and practice and working with educators of language learners in U.S. schools and with immigrant and refugee populations from around the globe. CAL’s experienced staff also work collaboratively with educators to weave in elements of cultural proficiency into all our professional development service offerings.
We invite you to browse our offerings below and to contact us to discuss your needs and interests.
