Community Schools and Equity: Changing Systems

Community Schools and Equity: Changing Systems

May 6, 2015 1:00-2:00pm EST

Our four-part 'Community Schools and Equity' webinar series continued with our third installment, "Community Schools and Equity: Changing Systems." During the webinar, participants learned how the commmunity school strategy is being utilized as a vehicle for systems-level change in school funding, teacher preparation, family financial stability, and student achievement.

The Schools Uniting Neighborhoods (SUN) Community Schools initiative will transform high-need schools into high-quality community schools through their Equity and Empowerment Lens. United Way of the Bay Area will present their SparkPoint Community Schools model, a two-generation approach for linking family economic success with student achievement. And at their University-Assisted Community Schools, IUPUI’s School of Education is developing teacher preparation programs under a social justice framework.

You can view and listen to the webinar here, and find the accompanying PowerPoint slides here.

Diana Hall -  Co-Chair, Community Schools Leadership Network; Program Supervisor, SUN Service System and Community Schools
Ena Li -  Education Director, United Way of the Bay Area

Monica Medina, Ph.D. - Interim Director, Center for Urban and Multiculutral Education, IUPUI School of Education
