It takes a community to raise (and maintain) a school’s performance. CEI helps public schools engage their communities through three main strategies, listed below. Click on the links to learn more about each strategy or contact us to discuss how we can help you get engaged in our public schools.
- Utilizing a “partnership school” model that formalizes and aligns relationships with school partners.
- Establishing a flexible set of after school/out-of-school time offerings that go beyond academic enrichment and make the most of the city’s cultural resources.
- Working with colleges and universities to help schools prepare students for college, integrate new research-based practices and, where appropriate, host teacher residencies.
