Partnering with K-12 Education in Building Healthy, Sustainable, and Competitive Regions: A California Policy Symposium
On December 6th, from 10 am to 4 pm, join leaders from across California to discuss aligning important policy agendas: ensuring high-quality, opportunity-rich schools in healthy, sustainable communities. The success of our cities and regions depends on high-quality schools, just as high-quality schools depend on the vibrancy, health, and sustainability of our communities. State and local policy leaders increasingly recognize how the conditions, qualities, and locations of K-12 school environments affect not only teaching and learning but also equity and healthy community objectives, including land use, growth, and congestion.
Attendance is free with registration and lunch will be provided. Contact Ibukun Olude at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Tsakopoulos Library Galleria, 828 I Street, Sacramento, CA

Learn how newly released PerformWell content can help civic engagement programs for youth manage program performance and measure outcomes. Teresa Derrick-Mills, who led the development of this new PerformWell content, will address questions like: What are meaningful outcomes for youth civic engagement programs? What are good tools to measure them? Which aspects of service delivery should be managed to make sure the program is on track to producing desired outcomes? Dr. Derrick-Mills is joined by Zenub Kakli, who will speak to how the United Teen Equality Center manages performance in practice. Dr. Derrick-Mills and Dr. Kakli will answer questions from the audience. Register for this event here.
