Strengthening The Afterschool-School District Relationship
Wednesday, May 2, 2018
10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
PAST Foundation
1003 Kinnear Road  Columbus, OH 43212
Join the Ohio Afterschool Network for our quarterly membership meeting. Please note that this meeting is at a new venue. Afterschool programs are valuable resources for school districts, bridging the gap between school and home, often offering academic support and providing opportunities for informal learning. But often a disconnect exists between the Afterschool program and your local school district and an opportunity is missed for collaboration.
Engage with OAN and other members and stakeholders to learn more about strategies to open conversations with your school about how you can strengthen the school-OST relationship. Meeting participants will receive a copy of the Mott Foundation and the National Association of Elementary School Principals collaborative report, Connecting the Dots, and ways to use this tool to connect with school administrators. Also on the agenda will be a review of ESSA and opportunities that exist for Afterschool to engage in a meaningful way to help schools achieve ESSA compliance.
Other topics will include updates on network activities from OAN committees – Advocacy, Quality Programs, Membership, STEM and the Strategic Leadership Team – as well as announcements from ODE. Click HERE to view the draft agenda.
