Friday Round-Up, December 6, 2013

Colleagues,

Here are a few updates for the past week from the Network Communities Support Center:

  • We received one Tell Our Story submission this week, from Buena Park, CA. Buena Park is working to establish an Education Commission to promote partnerships between the school district, the city, and individual schools, as well as to advocate education within the community. The Education Commission will serve as a liaison and identify community resources, in addition to other tasks. Read more.

  • The U.S. Education Department has named the top 25 applicants in the latest round of its Investing in Innovation (I3) program, a list that includes several organizations working in GLR Network communities or closely aligned with our work.

  • Several GLR communities in Oregon and Washington State gathered in Seattle in early November to share their work. Check out these innovative summer learning programs from Bellevue, WA; Lane County, OR; and Wallowa County, OR.

Warmly,
Susanne
