Partners of Promise: Connecting Citizens, Schools, and Communities
As resources become scarce and education more important to our society, Citizens, Schools and Communities must work together to make learning engaging and relevant for young people. This conference will highlight partnerships between higher education and K-12, community based organizations working within schools, and techniques to build and enhance community within the classroom and school building.
Our goal is provide resources for new and ongoing efforts by educators, parents, and engaged community members to connect citizens, schools and communities in ways that encourage learning.
Join us on June 5!
The Community Session on June 4 is free and open to the public.
