The Greater Englewood Community Action Council, along with the Office of Family & Community Engagement (FACE) is committed to engaging in meaningful conversation with parents and other community leaders and on May 14th was an exciting opportunity to talk through the real issues of education in the Greater Englewood neighborhood.  Participants discussed diverse methods to enhance the current models, such as implementing more community schools, or alternative options like a K-9 school, and parental engagement ideas such as a parental development retreats. The feedback and dialogue will serve as useful tools for the GECAC as they develop an educational strategic plan in the fall. If you are interested in attending a general meeting, join the the GECAC every 1st Thursday, at Robeson High School 6835 S. Normal Blvd. from 6pm-8pm.
