Voices for Education Takeaways - 12.17.18

The EWSD Voices for Education (VFE) group met on Monday, December 17 to discuss next steps following the community summit that was held on December 1.

Key takeaways from the meeting included:

  • The Nellie Mae grant, which has funded the work of and provided support for Voices for Education, comes to an end on December 31, 2018. This was a three-year grant that provided both fiscal and technical support to help improve engagement efforts in the newly merged district. The EWSD Board has recognized the importance of the work that VFE has done over the last few years and will continue to support it once the grant has come to a close.
  • The group talked about the community summit held on December 1. There were nearly 80 people in attendance, including 55 participants and the feedback was all positive.
  • VFE is theming and coding the data collected at the summit and will present it to the community at an upcoming celebration in January.
