Event description

Description

The CLA Confab is the premier monthly gathering in Chicago to showcase what's hot in literacy. As we continue to envision what a 100% literate Chicago looks like, the Confab will bring together speakers across our member network and the city to share top-level highlights from their work, connect around shared goals, and work toward collaborative solutions to the persisting gaps in literacy facing our city today.

This summer, we'll be exploring the theme of Excellence in Literacy Education with our final Confab on Administrators as Literacy Leaders defined as engaging in activities related to building a school culture that promotes and supports literacy across content areas, such as leading literacy initiatives and providing necessary resources for effective instruction.

Join us as we hear about great programs from member leaders UChicago Impact, Innovare, the Danielson Group, and Civitas Education Partners. We'll also welcome back Dr. Jane Fleming, Director of the Department of Literacy at Chicago Public Schools (CPS) to share an overview of the department's new five-year vision.

We'll spend the last 30 minutes building on our collaborative work over the last two quarters in small working group conversations about how we can collectively work together to impact literacy across Chicago.
