Join a superintendent, a school board member, a student, and a community engagement expert to hear the story of one school district’s efforts to engage with students, community members, and school leaders during a time of extraordinary change. Presenters will share how they developed a coalition, set goals, created alignment with internal and external stakeholders, and implemented a series of engagement activities, including outreach at multiple gatherings and events across several towns, and in-depth community dialogues. They will highlight ways they are working to incorporate what they are learning from the community into district decision-making.

Participants will leave with strategies for engaging with and empowering diverse stakeholders; ideas for building alignment among district staff, students, and a diverse group of community members; and samples and templates that they can adapt for their own schools.
