Thank you for attending our final School Policy Forum of 2014

Nearly 200 leaders joined us for our final forum of 2014, “How one region is using numbers to get everyone on the same page, from cradle to career,” which focused on “collective impact” movement advanced by civic, institutional and grassroots leaders in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, with special emphasis on Cincinnati’s Strive Together.

Many thanks to our outstanding forum speakers, journalist and consultant Richard Lee Colvin, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Cincinnati Robert C. Riefsnyder, and superintendent of Cincinnati Public Schools Mary A. Ronan.

We invite you to view our Facebook photo album of the event as well as take a three-minute survey if you were in attendance at either policy forum.

Here is a link to the Education Sector report, “Striving for Student Success: A Model of Shared Accountability,” co-authored by Richard Lee Colvin. And here is a link to the 2012-2013 report of the Strive Partnership. (We distributed several pages from this report at the forum.)

Catalyst Associate Editor Melissa Sanchez also assembled the key Tweets posted during the March 28 forum on the Strive Partnership. Here is the “Storify.”

Thank you again to all who attended.  We’ll see you in 2015!

BPI and Catalyst Chicago were pleased to welcome the Spencer Foundation as our lead sponsor for this year’s forums, and gratefully acknowledge the continued support of the McDougal Family Foundation, the Oppenheimer Family Foundation, and the Union League Club of Chicago.
