Grinnell Schools Taskforce

 

Grinnell College and the Grinnell-Newburg Community School District share goals of excellence and opportunity for the children and youth of Grinnell. To this end, a district/college taskforce was convened in spring 2015 to develop recommendations for a more intentional and effective partnership between the two institutions. The taskforce released a report (Grinnell Schools Taskforce Report) detailing the group’s recommendations. Several of the key recommendations (Summer Learning and Volunteer Coordination) are now being addressed through the Grinnell AmeriCorps Partnership:

  1. Summer Learning. Expand opportunities for summer learning activities for PK-12th grade students regardless of ability or achievement level.
  2. Technology and Language/Culture Enrichment. Provide and coordinate additional enrichment opportunities for PK-12 students; specifically in the areas of technology and language/culture.
  3. Volunteer Coordination. Increase the number of trained, coordinated, and supervised volunteers and tutors to assist and support teachers.
  4. Stronger Faculty Relationships. Provide opportunities for stronger relationships among faculty across the two institutions.
