D2 Center directors Greg Emmel and Carolyn Miller and Youth Academic Navigator (YAN) Kelsey Hansen attended the 2017 Western Regional Reengagement Plus! Convening in Tacoma, WA, December 6-8, 2017. As always the conference provided excellent networking opportunities and many chances to share best practices, along with site visits to different locations around Washington State where we could observe reengagement in action. In addition to in-depth discussion sessions with reengagement colleagues from across the Western U.S., we heard from speakers Carla J Santorno (Superintendent, Tacoma Public Schools), Chris Reykdal (Washington State Superintendent), and Mayor of Tacoma Marilyn Strickland — plus, as always, our fearless leader, Andrew Moore, who spearheads the National League of Cities Reengagement Network, of which we’ve been a part since 2011. Here’s more about the Washington State Open Doors Youth Reengagement system – it was wonderful to see all the coordinated reengagement efforts underway across the state.
D2 Center Youth Academic Navigator (YAN) Curtis Morgan and two of his students, Brandon and James, attended the 10th Annual State of Education in North Omaha Summit on Saturday, November 11, 2017.
