Spotlight on School Improvement
This fall, SchoolsMovingUp is excited to collaborate with partner organizations to present webinars on two new themes. In our after-school theme, learn how after-school programs support student learning in math, science, & engineering. Our second theme utilizes an interview format between a partner researcher and high school principals on the specific strategies each has successfully implemented to improve student achievement and graduation rates. We invite you to send any content-area questions which you would like to see addressed on these webinars to firstname.lastname@example.org
