Friday Round-Up, October 11, 2013


Here are a few updates for the week from the Network Communities Support Center, featuring Tell Our Story, upcoming conferences, and the next Attendance Works webinar:

  • Madison, NY has a candid and engaging account of what it takes for a rural community of 73,000 residents  –  “and ten school districts spread across one small city, 15 towns and 10 villages (and) over 660 square miles” –  to tackle “the GLR BIG THREE: Chronic Absenteeism, Summer Slide, and K-Readiness.”

  • You can register for the Growing Healthy Readers: Half-Day Literacy Conference on October 15th in New York City, hosted by Reach Out and Read of Greater New York and the United Way of New York City. The conference will focus on strategies to ensure that children from at-risk families develop on-track for success in school.
