We all know the expression, less is more. And while it applies to decadent chocolate cake and Grandma’s knick-knacks, the expression certainly is not true for education programs. More is more. Research shows that when many stakeholders—from parents to school leaders to classroom teachers to community partners—are engaged in education programs, it increases the likelihood of academic success for students. And the unexpected benefit is that when you have more stakeholders engaged, the floodgates open for better, stronger funding opportunities that will keep the success sustainable. 

In this webinar, learn how to access more funding by strategically building your education programs to involve more of your community. Co-presenters Dr. Paula Love and Helena Dameron will offer insights and information to help your district identify new approaches to funding your educational programs. By partnering with public and private organizations to offer aligned programming-- from early childhood programs, extended learning, dual-generation learning—your district can uncover new strategies for academic success and new funding streams. By the end of this webinar, you will have actionable funding resources that position your district to maximize funding opportunities and better meet the needs of your students.
