Today I am at the Sonoma County Cradle to Career symposium. School districts and supporting partners come together to collaborate and partner to support our youth. One speaker, Jane Quinn, talked about Community Schools which brings support partners on to campuses. We at Comstock are working to bring more partners in as well. Currently we have The Boys & Girls club, Santa Rosa Parks and Rec, SR symphony, SR Health Centers and more.
She also talked about 5 essentials for effective schools:
Principals: drivers of change, inclusive leadership approach
Real family nd community engagement
Ability to build professional capacity
Student centered school climate
