Scenario (case study)
You are the leadership team at your elementary (K-5) school (principal, assistant principal, guidance counselor, and grade level chairs). At the close of the past school year, you learned that your school will have its first wave of Bosnian immigrants attending your school this coming fall; these 30 students will be relatively evenly distributed among your six grades, with four to seven students in each class. Your average class size is 25, so these students comprise approximately 20% of each class. In the past, you have had no students in your school from countries or backgrounds other than the U.S. This will be a brand new experience for your students, your faculty and staff, you, and the community.
The following should be included in your assignment.
A. Title Page:

Discuss the following:

- Suggestions and discussion for coping with the challenges these students will present to faculty/staff during the upcoming year. Be sure to include approaches to assessment (assignments, exams, etc.) and any curricular adaptations that might have to be made.
- Suggest and discuss TWO ways to capitalize on this “opportunity” to engage the faculty/staff/students/community.
