We just wrapped up the annual YTFG meeting. It was just chock full of ideas to push our thinking about how we can improve our work together. It was also chock full of great things happening around the country.
1. Reengagement Centers: Cities and districts around the country are recruiting students to stay in school and re-enroll with reengagement centers that try to find a helpful place for students. Bringing together cross-system partners, they also help districts put together plans that provide support. We heard from TEEMGateway of New Jersey, where the model is spreading with Newark, Camden and Trenton. The D2 Center (Directions.Diploma.) in Omaha have opened their door in a mall with the support of the SherwoodFoundation.
