The Community Educators Network has joined together to work on a year long project entitled Creative Collaborations. In this program, non-profit organizations worked together to bring a variety of out-of-school professionals into the classroom and after school time in Santa Fe public schools. These professionals brought their expertise into the public school setting to deeply engage students in experiential learning opportunities. The project began with a teachers roundtable discussion to perform an assessment of the needs of public school teachers. Projects were developed by local non-profits in response to this needs assessment. The cohort also worked together to develop program assessment tools to evaluate program results to determine efficacy of this type of programming in Santa Fe schools.
