NEA awarded CTA three Public Engagement Project grants, which provide resources to organize broad-based community dialogue intended to improve public schools.
A sponsoring committee of educators, school administrators, parents and community leaders begin planning, developing and implementing the first community conversation.
The committee collects and analyzes the input from the community conversation. The information is used to identify priorities.
A second community conversation defines and clarifies priorities. The information is used to develop an action plan.
Once the action plan is written, the participants involved will decide on strategies to best implement the plan.
