C.S. Mott Community Center


Submission Deadline is Friday, October 9, 2015, 11:59 pm PST

The Coalition for Community Schools is partnering with the Albuquerque/Bernalillo Community Schools Partnership for the 2016 National Forum:

Rising Together: Learning across School, Family and Community

In community schools all children can thrive, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or economic status. In fact, as we “rise together,” community schools pay particular attention to building on the assets of children and youth in families facing the greatest inequities. That is why equity and opportunity for all has been a central tenet of our work. We are excited for you to join us in Albuquerque as we learn together, celebrate together, and rise together.

We are now inviting workshops that reflect the core theme and goals of this year's national forum. The goals are to:

  1. Highlight the focus of learning in community schools;
  2. Provide participants with the knowledge and skills to organize, operate, and scale up high quality community schools;
  3. Connect participants with a network of supportive peers; and
  4. Strengthen emerging state networks.

We strongly encourage you to download and review the materials ( WORD or PDF ) prior to starting the process online. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Jenn Masutani.
