Earlier this week, we hosted a diverse group of representatives from district schools, public charter schools, higher education and more, for a free training event – Addressing Civil Rights in Education.

Led by two nationally-recognized civil rights attorneys and an Idaho education attorney, this event was designed to provide resources and tools to help schools of all kinds understand and respond to some of their most pressing issues.

Breakout session topics were crowd-sourced from the attendees, to ensure they could have the opportunity to discuss and learn about their own specific challenges. Below are some resources presented at the training, organized by topic:

Bullying & Harrassment Understanding & Investigating Sexual Harassment & Sexual Assault Claims Special Education & Discipline with Related Discussion on School Safety
Serving Undocumented Students & Ensuring Access for LEP Parents Protecting LGBT Students OCR Changes in Policies, Practices & Guidance
This free professional learning opportunity  was hosted by Bluum and funded in part by Idaho’s Communities of Excellence Program. This is a competitive public charter school grant program funded under the Congressional Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA, Public Law 114-95), which reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965 (ESEA). $9,923.02.00 (70.26%) of this event funded by Federal CSP Grant dollars; $4,200.00 (29.74%) of this event funded by Bluum; total cost $14,123.02.00
