Many students not logging into their classes

The Community Response System of South Los Angeles (CRSSLA) is providing free case management training for agency and school representatives wanting to enhance their skills in making family care calls to engage students in their at-home learning.

CRSSLA is providing the training in response to reports that more than 50,000 area students did not log into their at-home learning in recent months. The scenario is especially troubling in an area where more than 80 percent of students at many schools have tested below grade level in math and English Language Arts.

The training participants will receive recommended case management procedures, a sample script, intake and tracking forms, and a family resource directory for the South LA area.

Dr. Angela Parker, director of trainings and programs at Jenesse Center, and Dr. Nathan Sessoms, adjunct professor at Loyola Marymount University’s Department of Sociology, will conduct the trainings. Naomi McSwain, executive director, Al Wooten Jr. Youth Center, will facilitate.

Four dates are available on Aug. 4, 11 and 18, and Sep. 1. RSVP and receive the Zoom logins at www.crssla.org/events.
