Event Details

First Nations students in some Wisconsin school districts are identified at higher than expected rates as requiring Special Education services and supports. Understanding more about the Nations your students may come from or be affiliated with can help educators develop better partnerships with parents to provide students with the best possible free and appropriate public education. Discussion about potential sources of bias and stereotypes will be included.

Learning Objectives:

  • Find out where to learn about Wisconsin’s First Nations
  • Become more knowledgeable about reasons why First Nations students may be mis-identified as requiring an IEP
  • Have the opportunity for participants to reflect on what they want to learn and do next

Presenters: Eva Kubinski is a school administration consultant on the Special Education Team at WI DPI. One of her areas of responsibility is supporting American Indian students with IEPs and David O’Connor is the American Indian Studies Program Consultant at the WI DPI. Mr. O’Connor is originally from and is a member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe) in northern Wisconsin.
