Morning Session: 9 - 11:30 a.m.
Afternoon Session: 12:30 - 3 p.m.
Fordham University, Rose Hill Campus
Counselors will learn how to create a FAFSA Event in their school to include information for English Language Learners and their families by pooling community-based resources (in various languages) and utilizing the College Goal New York platform to register students to meet with In-depth FAFSA Experts for line-by-line assistance with Federal Student Aid and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program. Learn more from the flyer.
We offer professional development in the areas of:
- literacy instruction
- early childhood programs
- content area instruction
- school improvement
- compliance including program models and organization
In addition, we collaborate with education and advocacy organizations serving New York City teachers, administrators, students and families. We also provide institutes and seminars augmented by on-site school support and guided by our constituents across the city.
Based on performance data, we invite schools to participate in our Collaborative Accountability Initiative. Together, the partners plan professional development for schools regarding ELL education.
Hands-on Involvement in Schools
Fordham GSE and The Center for Educational Partnerships are committed to hands-on involvement in schools and to maintaining the unique character of our local communities.
Toward that end we have offices in the Bronx and Manhattan, which bring our expertise close to our school partners. Each office provides meeting space and offers specialized resources.
