Children are not the only students at Lowell. Adults are also lifelong learners who need to be supported in their growth and given the tools needed to thrive in an increasingly multicultural world.
To that end, Lowell has dynamic professional development and parent education programs that pay particular attention to issues of diversity. These programs not only enhance the work of teachers, staff, and parents, but are an important part of healthy community-building.
In addition to offering workshops, speakers, book talks, and film screenings, Lowell hosts two year-long seminars (one for faculty and staff and one for parents) as part of The National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum
Lowell's director of diversity also identifies various local and national diversity events for individuals, as well as groups, to attend. Past professional development opportunities have included the NAIS
People of Color Conference and AIMS
Diversity Conference for Teachers and Administrators.
