It’s impossible to isolate “school” within the walls of the building, as each student that walks through the front doors brings with them a wider part of the community. How can you create a climate of success and keep drop out rates low by using community connections? Join area educators March 13 to discuss effective and intentional strategies to keep students in school in “If You Create It, They Will Stay!”. Presenters from EducationPlus, the St. Louis Regional Professional Development Center, and educators from districts across the state will be looking at five successful models and/or strategies. The models include aspects of mentoring, data collection, service learning, along with family and community involvement. Register by visiting edplus.org and going to the calendar.
