Signe is raising money for EDVISIONS INC.
30 years of helping more students and schools succeed
Established in 1988, the Center for School Change works with educators, parents, business people, students, policy-makers and other concerned people throughout the United States to:
- Increase student achievement.
- Raise high school and post-secondary graduation rates.
- Improve student attitudes toward learning, their schools, and being positive, active, contributing members of their community.
- Strengthen communities through building stronger working relationships among educators, parents, students and other community members.
Individual, government, foundation and corporate funders have give CSC money because of demonstrated success.
Here are some recent examples of CSC's work:
CSC helped Cincinnati Public Schools increase H.S. graduation rates and eliminate the graduation gap between white & black students. http://centerforschoolchange.org/projects/completed-projects/
CSC helped produce triple digit gains in the enrollment of high school students in college level (dual credit) courses at 6 St. Paul public high schools. We did this in part by helping each school to develop new college-level course offerings, and by working with faculty and leaders to develop a stronger "college-going" culture. http://centerforschoolchange.org/projects/increasing-college-readiness/ . 4 of the 6 high schools serve students commonly labeled as 'alternative.' We have continued to encourage collaboration by now working with district schools in two suburbs and charter and alternative schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Interviews with a couple of these students are on our website: http://centerforschoolchange.org/dual-credit/student-voices-real-dual-credit-students/
CSC helped produce major increases in family involvement and reading achievement in MN district & charter public schools. http://centerforschoolchange.org/projects/completed-projects/
CSC helped convene a meeting that brought together MN educators and experts on Historically Black and Tribal Colleges and Universities. We spent a rich day discussing and pledging action around what MN K-12 education might learn from the successful strategies that HBCUs and TCUs employ. http://centerforschoolchange.org/2014/10/learning-and-teaching-with-fire-lessons-from-hbcus-and-trib... Star Tribune editorial on the conference: http://www.startribune.com/opinion/editorials/279359342.html
CSC has published four editions of student-written essays on their Dual Credit experiences in our Jump Start Booklet. They are distributed through public libraries, schools, and community organizations. http://centerforschoolchange.org/dual-credit/jumpstart/
CSC has worked with schools and community organizations to create student-produced music videos on the value of Dual Credit in district and charter schools. There are now a total of 18 short videos in 7 different languages: English, Spanish, Hmong, Arabic, Somali, Karen, and Dakota. Available on our website and as DVDs. http://centerforschoolchange.org/dual-credit/
