Creating Engaging Summer Learning Opportunities for High-School Youth

DESCRIPTION

With distance learning, high-school youth attendance has dropped and more youth are at risk of dropping out. It is more important than ever to connect with and re-engage high-school youth this summer. Hands-on, paid work experience and enrichment programs can engage high school youth by providing real-world experience, mentors, an income and/or school credit, and leadership and collaboration skills. Districts and schools can leverage the increased and flexible summer and expanded learning resources to provide paid work experience and learning opportunities for high school students.

This is the third webinar in Partnership for Children & Youth (PCY)’s Summer Game Plan webinar series.

Partnering with Higher Education and Pre-Service Teachers

DESCRIPTION

Summer learning provides a unique training ground and flexible learning space for teacher preparation and pre-service teachers. These early-career teachers are an especially important workforce to tap this summer, when the existing teaching and expanded learning workforce is busy meeting the demands of school reopening. CSU and community college schools of education can provide a variety of resources and support to schools and expanded learning programs. Schools districts and their higher education partners can intentionally recruit and leverage new teachers and teachers candidates from their existing teacher pipeline programs.

This is the fourth webinar in Partnership for Children & Youth (PCY)’s Summer Game Plan webinar series.

Transforming Education in California

Welcome to the Transforming Education in California landing page! The 2021 Budget Act included significant new funding for TK-12 schools, and the possibilities to transform schools and communities through these investments became the charge. In response, we began a series of webinars in December 2021 aimed at unpacking the three largest initiatives—the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program, Universal Transitional Kindergarten, and the California Community Schools Partnership Program – and identifying strategic places for integration across initiatives to maximize the good work already underway. On this site, you can find those learning experiences and other just in time supports, as you continue the hard and necessary work of transforming education in your systems.
