Strengthening School Community Partnerships | May 4

Mon, May 4, 2009

Monday, 5/4

Target Audience:
Location: Chicago, IL
Presented by: Bliss Browne, President of Imagine Chicago
Sponsored by: Imagine Chicago

How do you build effective school/community partnerships? How do you turn a whole city into an active learning environment for families? How do you build relationships between teachers, parents and local cultural institutions that improve reading and create a culture of learning in the home? How do you reimagine and recreate public schools as imaginative community learning centers? What contributes to developing effective public private collaborations?

This hands on workshop will review the comprehensive school and parent planning, leadership and curriculum frameworks which Imagine Chicago designed and ran in partnership with Chicago public schools, museums and DePaul University from 1996-2001. The Urban Imagination Network was the largest Annenberg funded network in Chicago and included the largest parent literacy program in Chicago, run in both English and Spanish.

All participants will receive extensive sample materials that can be adapted in your own settings and learn the design principles and outcomes of the process.

Cost of $350 per workshop includes training materials.
Early bird discount of $50 for registrations prior to February 28.
Space limited to 15 participants. Register early.
