Multicultural Learning Center
Canoga Park, CA
“The Multicultural Learning Center (MLC) is developing a K8 Scope and Sequence for Social and Emotional Learning outcomes aligned with academic learning experiences. Students develop their abilities to be self- and socially aware, to problem-solve and communicate in the context of their community and apply those understandings to learning about the world beyond their immediate environment through history, science and diverse literature. MLC is providing all staff with professional leaning in behavior support, restorative practices, growth mindset, anti-bias teaching and community circles. Parents will engage in this work and bring the strategies home through parent workshops offered in English and Spanish.”
