TPS To Host Schools Uniting Communities

Posted: Updated:

Tulsa Public Schools will host the "Schools Uniting Communities" Conference for those wanting to help enrich the lives of students. 

The event is Thursday, July 26 from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. at OSU-Tulsa.  The conference is aimed at people who can make a difference for all students including teachers, civic leaders, and parents.  

An estimated 300 people are expected to attend the conference in an effort to provide information about how community schools can make a difference in the lives of children.  

"The need in many of our neighborhoods is so great that this conference will allow us to jumpstart community schools in our district,"  Dr. Diane Hensley, director of community schools for TPS said.  

She added,"Educators have long known that until a child's basic needs are met, no learning can take place. This conference is aimed at people who can make a difference for all students, whether they are professional educators, civic leaders, parents, or students, or are connected with universities, community organizations or faith-based groups. We enthusiastically welcome all interested parties."

Conference sessions will cover a wide range of community school-related topics, such as: What is a community school? Measuring the success of community schools, how to engage parents and communities on all students' success; and how does the climate of your school impact learning? 

The conference is free and open to all.  Those interested can register online at www.tulsaschools.org/communityschools or at the door.

For more information, contact Hensley at 918-746-6142 or hensldi@tulsaschools.org.
