The goal of the Alliance 2015 Summit is to strengthen alliance building efforts for a common agenda that supports student success.

Alliance 2015 will create a space where participants can:

  • Hear diverse perspectives about effective policies and best practices that address needs of students and families
  • Become familiar with strategies for strengthening school and community partnerships to support high need student and communities
  • Learn how family engagement practices can be embedded into program and advocacy initiatives, locally and statewide
  • Increase their confidence to become champions for authentic parent engagement in their communities



A staggering 27% of children in California are living in poverty. When students obtain a quality education, they are more prepared for active engagement in the economic and civic fabric of our society. Strengthening public education requires a collective effort of families, schools, and the broader community to create the conditions necessary for students to succeed in school and in life. It is our belief that by working in collaboration, we can break the silos that separate our advocacy efforts and unite for greater collective impact. If you want to learn from experts in the field and engage in solutions-oriented dialogue, don’t miss Alliance 2015!
