Our vision for Shaping our Future by Leading Together: Families, Schools and Communities is to support the efficacy of parents, families, educators and other community-based partners to work collaboratively to improve schooling and student achievement, and to co-create communities that are flourishing spaces for lifelong learning and development for all children.
Patricia is a founding member of the District Leaders Network on Family and Community Engagement as well as a strong supporter of the Parent Teacher Home Visit Project, where Springfield is an affiliate. Founding members (Michele Brooks, Boston in 2013; Tracy Hill, Cleveland in 2014) of the District Leaders Network have been honored each year by Edweek and as this network (currently at 125 districts) continues to grow, our goal is that a network member receive this honor each year going forward.
Let’s congratulate Pat Spradley while we celebrate strong district leaders and systemic family and community engagement practice!
This family engagement peer network brings together leaders from across the nation and provides the most up-to-date resources, professional development, and best practices to ultimately improve student achievement. Each year, the Network hosts a National Meeting and Learning Lab to discuss the Federal Landscape and introduce new research and its innovative applications.
