CMSD Family Partnership Institute to meet

CMSD’s new Family Partnership Institute will hold its first meetings in October.

The District created the institute to provide families with important information on District initiatives, goals, supports and more. The institute will emphasize the importance of working together to ensure students’ success.

The free sessions will include a keynote speaker, workshops, a healthy meal, displays by community partners and networking.

The first two sessions will be held Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the Lincoln-West Campus, 3202 W. 30th St., and Wednesday, Oct. 30 at East Tech High School, 2439 E. 55th St. Additional sessions will be held Wednesday, Feb. 19 and Wednesday, March 4 at locations that are to be determined. All of the sessions will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

The Family Partnership Institute replaces the Parent Leadership Institute, which began as a vehicle for networking and information for members of school PTAs, SPOs and principal advisory groups.
