12/10 – Open RIISE Workshop – Decoding the Code: Helping Families to Thrive in an Independent School Environment

Abstract:
For those who are new to the Independent school experience there may be a period of  “transition shock” that occurs as a result of the family’s entry into a seemingly unfamiliar system.  Successful negotiation of  the admissions process can leave parents feeling on top of the world;  however, the day to day  routine associated with getting the child engaged, connected, and acclimated to the independent school culture and its expectations can be daunting at times.  This workshop equips  parents with the skills to decode the independent school culture, it highlights tools and techniques educators may use to communicate about student performance, the importance of parent participation in the Independent school culture , and helps parents consider how to re-group when plans for their child’s educational pursuits don’t go according to plan.
This is an open event. Lower school and prospective families are encouraged to register.
Dr. King-Toler is a cross-cultural psychologist who works with educators, health professionals, and law enforcement agents to improve their practice as culturally competent practitioners.  She is the mother of three sons, two of whom are independent school scholars.
