CASCWA's Bay Section Presents:
WINTER ZOOM WORKSHOP 2021
February 25, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Topic: How to build and maintain culture during the
pandemic and times of crisis!
Tyrone's message to all: "Today’s schools are faced with unprecedented crises that have completely disrupted the very foundation of school culture and climate. Classes are being taught online through a variety of distant learning models, the coronavirus pandemic instills fear and worry over the health and wellbeing of staff and students, and the black lives matter movement raises awareness of deeply rooted racial inequities in our schools and communities.
In order for schools to build and maintain culture during these turbulent times, administrators and teachers must explore new strategies and adapt existing ones to ensure that the both adults and students can navigate through these crises. This training will engage participants in deep dialogue and reflection about the impact that these crises have on school communities and how to better support staff so they can support students and families.
This training will introduce tools and strategies that have helped dozens of schools across the state and nation take steps toward creating a more cohesive and resilient school culture. Lastly, participants will have the chance to pose questions and receive answers to challenges related to relationship building, anti-racism, and conflict resolution that have shown up during these crises."

BAY SECTION PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Dear CASCWA Members and Friends,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! It is great to see in person instruction happening in our schools. Yet I am sure everyone agrees that this has been the most challenging year in decades. Schools and districts face many changes this year as we work hard to make schools safe and supportive places to learn. The Bay Section Board also has changes for 2021-2022 and we stand ready to support members to have a successful school year. I am sorry to share that I am stepping down as section President and appointed, with support of the Bay Section Board, Evelyn Ocasio to act as President for the remainder of the term. I look forward to supporting the Bay section to the best of my ability as a member at large. Evelyn and I are jointly writing this message to assure section members that our Executive Board will continue to provide meaningful collaboration, training and community as we all take on this challenging year together.
Education is more complex than ever with the range of teaching and learning requirements needed this year to engage our students. The role of Child Welfare and Attendance is critical in creating climates and cultures where students, staff, and families feel safe, supported, and ready to learn. Being an active member of CASCWA, attending workshops and conferences, sharing your experience and expertise is so important for us to become the vibrant professional learning community necessary for schools to thrive. We are stronger together!
Last spring we awarded CASCWA scholarships to 10 extremely deserving students to help support their college aspirations. The Bay Section is so proud to recognize and honor these special students who overcame a range of challenges. These students benefited from the support of school counselors, community agencies, child welfare and attendance workers and others. Please Join us in congratulating the following students: Yessensia Sanchez Reyes, Angel Garcia Lopez, Alrene Cisneros, Kalani Dunn, Anghela Martinez, Iice Perez, Consuelo Vidal-Perez, Edgar Garcia-Rodriguez, Anisa Velasco, and Arissa Rafael. These students represent Clear Lake, Hayward, Oakley, Pittsburg, Royal Oaks, and Watsonville. Bay Section Congratulates our Scholarship Winners!
