Posted by PHENND on February 2, 2015

The next K-16 University Partners Meeting will be Wednesday, February 18 at 3:30-5:00 PM at 440 North Broad Street. This meeting will address early childhood literacy, one of the District’s stated top priorities. “Take aways” for this meeting will include obtaining information on READ! By 4th strategies and programs and discussing how university partners can support literacy initiatives in Philadelphia.

Speakers will include:

  • Christine Caputo, Interim Chief, Public Service Support and Bill Richards Director of the Philadelphia Out of School Time Literacy Initiative from the Free Library of Philadelphia
  • Cindy Rubino, Director of the Office of Community Service at Arcadia University

Who should attend?
-University faculty, staff and students who work with young children (pre-K through 4th grade)
-Non-profits and community programs focused on early literacy who are interested in partnerships with colleges and universities
-K-12 teachers, administrators and staff interested in community partnerships for early literacy

PHENND University Partner Meetings bring together university, nonprofit, and school-based practitioners around common themes. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions to all presenters, network with peers and obtain concrete information on early literacy strategies. The three main goals for K-16 University Partners meetings are:

– provide practitioners with “take aways” (e.g. ideas you can adapt for use in your own programs)
-exposure to new and innovative programs and practices
-introduction to key School District personnel
