Promises2Kids will hold a free virtual San Diego Foster Care Education Summit, Improving the Educational Outcomes for Foster Youth in a Virtual World. Summit guests will learn from foster youth, educators, caregivers, and community members, who will be sharing their experiences of navigating through the education system during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual workshops will also discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on foster youth and their education, creating engaging virtual lesson plans, how you can improve foster youth education, and much more. Track 1 for teachers, administrators, social workers, and CASAs include how to engage in a virtual classroom, trauma-informed teaching, and creating a safe space to talk about race and inequality. Track 2 for caregivers, CASAs, and volunteers will discuss balancing parenting and in-home education for your child, and advocacy and IEPs from the parent perspective.
