Each year, CSFP brings administrators from our network of 170 partner schools together for a Partner School Meeting to network, share best practices, and review CSFP partner school guidelines. This year’s meeting also featured guest speakers on topics relevant to K-8th grade education: Great Philly Schools (GPS) representatives spoke about their rating system, and representatives from AIM Institute presented their literacy teacher training opportunity, AIM Pathways. CSFP also reviewed requirements for private schools that offer pre-K to participate in Pennsylvania’s leading pre-K rating system, Keystone STARS.
Administrators from CSFP’s diverse partner schools said they value this engaging meeting, providing feedback such as:
“I appreciate this time to connect with both CSFP staff (so I can put faces to names!) and with other schools.” – Susan Howard, Cedar Grove Christian Academy
“The [Principals] Meeting is always so informative and intimate! You [CSFP] do such a great job fulfilling the mission of ‘making quality education more accessible.’” _Rauhsaha Bowden, Hope Church School
“Great meeting as usual!” –Aisha Anderson-Oberman, Project Learn School
CSFP would like to thank the attendees of the Partner School Meeting and our guest speakers: GPS and AIM Institute; Community Partnership School for hosting the event; and FirstBook, the Delaware Children’s Museum, Center City District and Le Pain Quotidien for supporting the event.
