(5/24/2011)

A
merica’s world leadership is rooted in its political freedoms and in the high-caliber industry and innovation of its workforce. To advance and even maintain that standing in today’s global economy, we must find better ways to use all our resources to educate young people and engage their families and the community.  To this end, the Coalition invites you to this National Call to Action!


NOW is the time to make the case for community schools and educate our U.S. Senators and House Representatives! As you know, the Coalition is hosting a
National Community Schools Advocacy Day- June 15-16, 2011. This webinar is the beginning of your preparation for this event! Even if you are unable to make the trip to Washington, DC in June, you can still participate by making phone calls, sending emails, and organizing site visits!

Through this webinar, you will gain insight into the policy landscape as Congress aims to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 and how community schools fit into the picture. Presenters will share key community school talking points for your meetings with policymakers. Learn about the key pieces of legislation that support the community school principles and how community schools can be embedded within ESEA. Finally, you will walk away with strategies on how to share why community schools are important to your students, families, and communities.
