Community School Models: A Path Forward for Education

  • Date:Friday, November 5
  • Time:9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: Perkins Eastman, in partnership with Drexel University’s School of Education, is studying how to design “community schools” to maximize their impact on not only student performance and well-being, but community resiliency and wellness as a whole. Building upon a series of interviews with school administrators, teachers, community school coordinators, parents and district leadership, research, surveys, and roundtables with leading educators, our presentation will share our findings and design ideas for helping schools and educators further advance the concept of community schooling.
