New Haven, CT - For the second year, the Connecticut RISE Network has been invited to present at the Carnegie Foundation’s 2022 Summit on Improvement in Education in San Diego, CA. The Summit, which will be held from March 27 to 29, 2022, is the place educators gather each year to share “improvement stories of what worked, what didn’t, and what we learned in the process.” Last year, RISE attended as one of two national honorees for the Spotlight on Quality in Continuous Improvement distinction, presenting on the organization’s success promoting Grade 9 on-track achievement. This year, RISE will send three speakers to the event to present on its college and career access work, including Executive Director Emily Pallin, Deputy Director, Engagement Sam Purdy and Deputy Director, Postsecondary Success Sherry McLaughlin. This will mark the first in-person summit since 2019 and will build on the teachings that were gained from the 2020 and 2021 virtual Summits. Keynote speeches will continue to be live-streamed and have been designed to engage both in-person and remote attendees. These sessions will also be recorded and made available in the 2022 Summit Digital Library. “As a learning and improvement network, we value opportunities to share promising practices with other educators across the country, ” said Emily Pallin, Executive Director at the Connecticut RISE Network. “This year, we are thrilled to again represent the RISE community and share ways in which we are working together to close opportunity gaps by supporting all students as they pursue their college and career goals.” RISE presenters will highlight launching and growing a network community, how to design data tools for continuous improvement, and identify strategies to promote postsecondary success. RISE’s session will unpack examples of network-driven improvement, including RISE’s postsecondary data tracker, Summer Melt Texting Program, and statewide FAFSA Challenge in partnership with the State of Connecticut. RISE presenters will highlight launching and growing a network community, how to design data tools for continuous improvement, and identify strategies to promote postsecondary success. "In partnership with RISE educators, we have identified effective ways to enhance counselor interactions with students and families by providing real-time data,” said Sherry McLaughlin, Deputy Director of Postsecondary Success at the Connecticut RISE Network. “By sharing our experience with other educators across the country, we are also recognizing the accomplishments of the RISE educators and staff whose efforts ensure all students secure a postsecondary plan and complete milestones needed to achieve their goal."
