CS Fundamentals Conference 2021

Register here for the Community Schools Fundamentals Conference 2021

February 9-11, 2021

The National Center for Community Schools at Children’s Aid presents the virtual edition of the Community Schools Fundamentals Conference, a learning experience designed specifically for those new or relatively new to community schools. Now more than ever, community schools are the right strategy to support students, families, and neighborhoods.  We’ll share lessons learned from over 25 years of implementation in New York City and nationwide capacity building, as well as promising practices emerging from the COVID era. In addition to attending a virtual school visit to a Children’s Aid community school, participants will learn about the foundations and the updated “nuts and bolts” of community school practice.

Join us on this virtual journey to deepen your understanding of community schools and network with other school and community leaders from across the country!
