Beginning as a frustrated mother, Brooks became assistant superintendent in charge of the office of family and student engagement in Boston Public Schools. Brooks is credited with strategically aligning Boston’s parent-engagement efforts with the district’s academic goals, which moved the work of her office from a peripheral activity to one that is central to the needs of the district’s 57,000 students and their families.

Maybe 2015 +EducationWeek Leader To Learn From Patricia A. Spradley should patent her parent engagement strategy!

As chief parent and community engagement officer in the Springfield Mass. school district, she has helped parents by offering over three dozen courses geared towards academics, student well-being, and fun. She’s enabling parents to become role models for their own children so they can help them succeed in school and in life.

Meet, network, and build your district team with past leaders including Spradley and our Class of 2016 Leaders on Friday, March 11, 2016, in Washington, D.C.

2015 Leader to Learn From, Deputy Superintendent Josh Garcia, Tacoma public schools, Wash., is coming back for more! Register and you’ll be able to connect with him and meet the Class of 2016 Leaders the only opportunity you’ll have to learn about the successes they are having in their districts.

Join us! Friday, March 11, 2016, in Washington, D.C.

Josh Garcia, a former principal and high school math teacher, spearheaded a new project that defies standard practice and defines success according to his district’s needs. His district of 30,000 students has pioneered a local accountability system with a different, much broader conception of success.

Now in its second year of full implementation, Tacoma’s “whole child” method of appraising schools incorporates more than three dozen indicators­—in addition to mathematics and English/language arts achievement—that it considers pivotal to healthy learning and growing.

By breaking down economic barriers in your districts, can you give students a more solid footing for success in school? That’s precisely what past Leader To Learn From Superintendent Tiffany Anderson did. When Tiffany Anderson, one of +EducationWeek’s 2015 Leaders To Learn From became the superintendent of the local school district, her first project was to tend to the most basic needs of students and their families. She teamed up with the St. Louis Area Food Bank to open a school-based food pantry for Jennings’ struggling families. More than 90 percent of the district’s students are eligible to receive federal free and reduced-price meals.

Meet Tiffany and our new cohort of leaders at our live event on March 11, 2016. Register: http://leaders.edweek.org/event-details/?intc=ltlfnavtop
