Community Schools 3.0

A tangible response to inequity, poverty & improved educational outcomes

virtual event

underwritten by schmidt futures

Long standing racial inequities and systemic disadvantages in our schools and communities must change. As civic and educational leaders look for solutions, it is time to take another look at Community Schools as a practical and tangible path forward for many neighborhoods.  

Community Schools have been around for decades.
First introduced in the 1890’s and revisited in the 1990’s by then U.S. Secretary of Education, Richard Riley, who aspired to “create schools as centers of community.” It’s now time to Reimagine Community Schools and create Community Schools 3.0.  

Please join us as we engage communities to create a new 21st century educational commons and a platform to support more robust and successful neighborhoods and students.  

A forum of national thought leaders will be discussing Community Schools 3.0 will be moderated by Tony Smith, former Illinois State Superintendent of Education.
