Why Are More Policymakers Supporting Community Schools?
A Conversation with School and Local Government Leaders

Join Us On Our Webinar
Monday May 18th at 2pm (ET)

Education is a core priority for the Obama Administration. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, former leader of the largest community school system in the nation, believes that embracing schools as centers of community will bring them into the 21st Century to better meet the needs of today’s students, families, and communities.

Do you want to bring the community schools strategy to your community? Join us to learn more about how and why local school and municipal leaders are implementing community schools. We will be joined by an expert panel including a Mayor, County Chairperson, and a District Superintendent about how and why they chose community schools. How are they bringing their community schools initiative to scale? What challenges did they encounter?

Mark your calendar and bring your questions about community schools to this expert panel and see if community schools can be a strategy for your community!
