EdRedesign has launched a new learning community for school leaders, educators, community-based organizations and others interested in creating personalized, relationship-driven approaches to serving children. During the inaugural session, participants discussed the current needs of young people in their community and shared what their organization, school, or distict already has in development to address these needs. Future sessions will be shaped based on the group's interests and stages of Success Planning development. There is no fee to join this group, and multiple members of an organization are welcome to participate. If you're interested in joining, please complete our short questionnaire.
In conjunction with the launch, we hosted Connecting Children with Comprehensive Supports and Opportunities, the third session in our Success Planning webinar series, which explores different approaches to providing comprehensive services to students and spotlights efforts in Chattanooga, TN and Oakland, CA, as well as a statewide program in MA. Featured speakers included Dr. Nakia Towns, Interim Superintendent of Hamilton County Schools, John Cunningham, Program Manager at Hamilton County Schools, Andrea Bustamante, Executive Director of Community Schools Student Services at Oakland Unified School District, and Elle Jansen, Senior Associate at the Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy.
