Deep Dive: EAL and Admissions: An Essential Partnership - Panel

All times are U.S. Central Time
(Asia morning session)

In this webinar, representatives from several international schools will discuss the issues they consider important when establishing a school admissions policy. Representatives from each school will discuss how they balance requirements from admissions offices with those of the EAL department.

The panelists will also reflect on the information and resources they utilize from WIDA in their school admissions policy. Finally, panelists will discuss challenges they have faced in building an equitable admissions policy for all students.

Those who attend this webinar should leave with a better understanding of how experienced staff from international schools craft thoughtful admissions policies. Attendees should also learn about aspects of international school admissions policy that may be directly relevant to their own school, with a particular focus on the needs of EALs.

This session will be presented by Mark Chapman, senior assessment innovation manager at WIDA.
