Changing Suburbs Institute®
Every day one more English Language Learner enrolls at a public school. Educators need special skills to address this group, which is why we established the Changing Suburbs Institute® (CSI) in 2006. The Changing Suburbs Institute® (CSI) focuses on developing teachers and faculty who can give students their best chance to succeed. Together with eight school districts, CSI works to provide programmatic and professional development to administrators and teachers, as well as offer resources and research that recognize the increasingly diverse student populations of our suburbs.
