This title is resurrected from the post in which third grade students reflected on Dr. Michael F. Rice, Superintendent of Kalamazoo Public Schools.
Some of the very best and talented superintendents throughout the nation (including right here in Kalamazoo!) incorporate Communities In Schools within their districts to align community resources within the schools to increase our collective impact on children.
Three of those leaders recently spoke about how the CIS model has helped change the picture of education for students in their communities. Hailing from Thomasville City Schools, North Carolina (Dr. Maria Pitre-Martin), Santa Fe Public Schools, New Mexico (Dr. Joel Boyd), and Richmond Public Schools, Viriginia (Dr. Jana Bedden), these superintendents give a glimpse into what is going on beyond Kalamazoo. Watch this! It will take two minutes out of your day.
Worth your time, don’t you think?
