NYS/NYC Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network
Our mission is to assist networks, schools and districts across all five boroughs in creating professional learning communities centered on English language learner issues.
We offer professional development in the areas of:
- literacy instruction/ Next Generation Learning Standards
- K- 12 programs
- English as a New Language and Spanish literacy instructional programs
- content area instruction/ Next Generation Learning Standards
- accountability and school improvement/ESSA
- compliance: program models and organization
- special education
In addition, we collaborate with education and advocacy organizations serving New York City teachers, administrators, students and families, counselors, social workers and psychologists working with ELLs/MLLs. Our professional development activities provide institutes and seminars that are augmented by on-site school support and guided by our constituents across the city.
Read about our recent work at the 4th Annual UFT ExcELLing Conference for ELLs (English Language Learners) and MLLs (Multilingual Learners) to support educators with the most current strategies for teaching these students.
We invite schools to participate in our Collaborative Accountability Initiative, a partnership that focuses on data analysis with the goals of planning and developing quality, and equitable programs for ELLs/MLLs, and offers professional development opportunities for teachers.
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.
