In this webinar, we shared policy briefs about two particular groups within the multilingual student population: newcomers and ELs with disabilities. We presented analysis of statewide data about newcomer students, including their concentration in Oregon schools and districts. We also shared research exploring disproportionality in special education for ELs and research about family engagement for ELs with disabilities. We discussed ways findings have impacted policy and practice and reflected on additional action steps needed. The policy briefs referenced in this webinar are available at: http://beav.es/odeosupolicybriefs.
