Earlier this week, City Connects attended “Leadership for Learning,” the Ohio School Board Association’s annual conference.
The event is “Ohio’s premier continuing education program — delivering practical solutions to help school district governance teams improve student learning and achievement.”
As we’ve blogged, City Connects was recently written into Ohio’s state budget as one model that schools can use to provide students with integrated student support – the opportunities and services they need outside of school so that they can thrive in school.
“We’re proud and excited to share our work with Ohio educators,” Mary Walsh, City Connects’ Executive Director says. “And we hope that as more teachers and administrators learn about what we do, they will look to enlist us as trusted partners. We know that poverty can make it difficult for children to do well in school. But we also know how to address these challenges so that students and teachers can focus on the kind of learning that leads to long-term academic success.”
