Beyond School Improvement: Partnering to Strengthen Educational Opportunities for Urban Children and Youth
December 6, 2012
8:30 AM - 10:30 AM (Central)
Urban students and their families find that students’ community experiences affect whether and how much they can benefit from educational services, and this awareness often leads to a call for partnerships of schools, community institutions, and public agencies to respond to the diverse, often extensive, academic and nonacademic needs of students and to provide them with supportive environments in which they can learn and thrive. Such cross-sector and cross-institutional arrangements require focused attention from policymakers, administrators, and researchers to accomplish their goals. The forum will discuss why and how partners engage and work with each other, what structures and supports are required for these often complex relationships, and what the opportunities and challenges are in evaluating these efforts; and will examine partnerships initiated and supported by a public agency (the police department) and a major community institution (a university).
