April 21 Durham Community Schools Initiative Meeting
On Saturday, April 21, at the Temple Building (302 W Main), the Durham Association of Educators and Community Alliance for Public Education will be hosting a two-hour workshop for school-based supporters, community partners, and officials and staff from the city, county, and school board. We would be honored if you would attend. The event will begin promptly at 12:00 and end at 2:00. Light food, childcare, and Spanish interpretation will be provided.

For the last year, we have been building support for this transformational model throughout the community. We have conducted workshops, small group meetings, and one on ones with elected officials from all three elected bodies in the county. We have met with service providers and agencies and individuals who are interested in supporting the project and/or providing resources. Most importantly, the staff of five schools (Club Blvd, EK Powe, Hope Valley, Lakewood, and Southwest) have voted at a rate of at least 94% (with 100% turnout at each school) to adopt the Community Schools approach. The excitement is growing, and people are ready to begin the hard work of transforming our schools and communities together.

The workshop aims to help participants deepen their understanding of the key strategies at the core of the Community Schools model, and begin building the relationships and infrastructure that this project will rely on for its success. Either in person or through video conference, a team of experts from around the country will share their perspectives as we move towards the first implementation stages of our efforts here in Durham. We need your wisdom, your energy, and your insights.

Thanks in advance for any effort that you can make to attend. There are no magic bullets in education, but we feel confident that a whole child focused effort that engages all stakeholders as meaningful participants, centers high quality teaching, emphasizes racial equity, and harnesses the resources of our whole community can transform our schools and improve outcomes for our young people. We are looking forward to seeing you on the 21st and working with you to ensure the success of this critical initiative.

Thank you
