Join teams from schools across Texas for a three-day summit that will provide tools for building thriving community school efforts! Whether you are new to the idea of community schools or already have an effort underway, you’ll find helpful information, ideas and networking.
Day 1: Start the summit off with a day focused on the big picture in Texas, with stories about on-the-ground successes and the fight for community schools in the legislature. Network with local and state leaders. This is a great day to bring your administrators and decision-makers to learn about community schools. Sponsored by the Texas AFT, the Texas Community Schools Coalition and Ausitn Voices.
Day 2 and 3: Come for a day and a half of nuts and bolts learning, including lots of time to work with your team on community school planning. Last year we had 20 teams from around the state sharing ideas and getting ready for the next school year. We’ll start and finish with fun activities based around the theme “Community Schools: A Recipe for Success!” Childcare and Spanish translation are available for teams that want to bring parents and community members. We’ll wrap up at 2 pm on Friday.
Cost: $35 for Individual Registration (non-AISD; AISD parents and staff members are no cost); Wednesday only Leadership and Policy Forum in no cost.
Meals and materials provided.
Sponsored by Texas Community Schools Coalition, Texas AFT, Austin Voices for Education and Youth and Save Texas Schools.
