More Than Just Another "To-Do" on the List: The Benefits of Strong School, Principal, and Afterschool/Community Relationships

 

December 3, 2013 10am PST/1pm EST

 

Student learning is no longer the sole province of schools. Therefore, it is imperative that principals and afterschool program site leaders, along with their faculty and staff colleagues, strive to build strong ties of mutual support for enriching the experiences of children and youth in schools and afterschool and summer learning programs in every learning community throughout our nation. Learn how afterschool and administrators are working together to “build a new day for learning,” aimed at achieving innovative reform within schools and through quality afterschool and summer learning programs.

 

Presenters: Gail Connelly, Executive Director, National Association of Elementary School Principals and Gina Warner, Executive Director, National Afterschool Association

 

Moderator: Terry Peterson, Ph.D.
