Power of collaboration
On May 12, 2015, the NYSED Charter School Office hosted a conference centered on best practice sharing between charter and district schools throughout New York State. Schools participating in the New York State Dissemination Program—a grant funded through the federal Charter Schools Program—were able to showcase their work, best practices, and lessons learned. This conference highlighted the emerging outcomes of the 11 charter schools and over 40 district schools involved in the dissemination grant. Over 120 administrators, teachers, program directors, and evaluators attended.
Leading education experts from the Dissemination and Replication Grants discuss the challenges of collaboration, how they were able to make the sharing of best practices a reality, and how you can, too.
