The Winooski school board, in collaboration with school leaders and students, gathered community input that catapulted meaningful change toward student-centered learning in the Winooski School District. Using neighborhood learning conversations and culminating large community conversations, the district laid a foundation to utilize community in moving their school district forward. Through neighborhood learning conversations, the Winooski community helped the school district determine their transferable skills, or graduation expectations, and helped shape an ends statement that drives the district’s governance.

In this session, presenters will share the Public Participation Spectrum to support participants in better understanding the goals and promises they make based on how they engage community. Participants will examine the correlation between family/community involvement and graduation rates and college readiness, and they will leave this workshop with the information and tools to develop neighborhood learning conversations in their own school community.
