"The work begins with a willingness to examine our biases about families and communities, and how those biases impact our practice." – Dr. Karen L. Mapp

Extensive research has shown the powerful impact of effective family-school partnerships on students, parents, teachers, and schools. In fact, Dr. Mapp joined the City Club in 2017 to talk about the importance of community supported education.

Now, Dr. Mapp is back to discuss what we have learned from the COVID-19 crisis and the national racial reckoning about the critical role of home-school partnerships to support student success and school improvement. She will also introduce the Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships (Version 2)—a compass that lays out the goals and conditions necessary to chart a path toward effective family engagement efforts that are linked to student achievement and school improvement.

Dr. Mapp is the co-author of several books, and from 2011 to 2013, Dr. Mapp served as a consultant to the United States Department of Education in the Office of Innovation and Improvement. She will be joined by Habeebah R. Grimes, CEO at Positive Education Program; and Gina Garrett, Family Program Manager at Open Doors Academy.

The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.

Effective October 1, 2021, the City Club will be requiring ticketholders to provide proof of Covid vaccination or a recent negative Covid test. Email with any questions.

Production and distribution of City Club forums in partnership with Ideastream Public Media is generously provided by PNC and the United Black Fund.
