The 2018 Newton Family Conference to be held on Saturday, December 1st, 1:00 – 4:00 pm at Newton North High School. The goal of the conference is to build relationships between families of color and white families within the district, advance dialogue around issues of race, culture, and identity and create opportunities for families within NPS to connect.
Participants will attend workshops on “Courageous Conversations About Race” facilitated by NPS trained facilitators. These sessions will be similar to the workshops in which Newton faculty and staff are participating.
The Family Conference is one way in which the Newton Public School District is seeking to create culturally responsive school communities with equity and excellence for all.
