Developing the knowledge and practicing the skills of cultural competency enable all district personnel to relate to people and groups who are culturally diverse, which is critical for the success of all learners. This workshop is designed for all school and district staff as it addresses basic knowledge and skills that are foundational to developing cultural competency. The readings and
activities are provided for this PD series using a learning management system called “Moodle.”

Participants will:
