It has been quite a busy few months for Structured Solutions! We are now supporting 22 elementary through high schools in Baltimore City with their family engagement efforts, working to bring big-picture thinking, creativity, and an asset-based approach to work that is often viewed from a compliance lens. We are working with an additional eight schools in Baltimore in conjunction with the Family League, supporting engagement efforts around Pre-K enrollment, early transitions to school, attendance, and partnerships with community childcare providers.
Our work has also expanded to Louisville, KY through a project with Attendance Works! We are supporting a small group of elementary schools in providing tried-and-true practices and strategies for supporting engagement in the area of attendance.
Structured Solutions believes that this is essential work for helping to improve educational experiences for students, families, communities, and school staff. We are grateful for the opportunities to work with these schools and organizations in pursuit of it!
The goal of this blog is to highlight relevant issues that impact students, families, and communities and spark engaging discussions about how to address those issues through evaluation.
