BP School Takeover

  • Freeman Elementary

BP School Takeover is a wonderful event dedicated to serving the youth of our communities. The focus of our event is to celebrate the importance of reading while building healthy youth/adult relationships. School Takeover provides an open & organic fellowship for continuous community unification. Brandon Publishing and our partners, understand the importance of literacy focused projects. Our 'School Takeover' event has provided many positive outputs for all involved. Each event calls for at least 30 adult volunteer readers to partner with 2nd grade students over a two hour lunch break.  Reading buddies (adults and youth) exchange names, likes, favorite colors, sports teams, subjects and more as they prepare to read. After reading, students and adults are able to share what they've learned from the book and also what they've learned from their buddies. Domino's pizza has been a proud sponsor and provider of food for our youth and adults to share in.

Publisher Kellen E. Brandon sits on panel on Closing Gaps for Youth

  • Kelogg Center

Education Policy Fellowship Program

Policy Simulation and Gaps in Whole Child Supports

During the first half of this session Fellows will participate in a policy simulation and debriefing discussion on the Balancing Voices framework. The policy-oriented discussion will ask Fellows to consider: “How does use of the Balancing Voices framework affect perceptions of the legitimacy of a decision-making process, others in the process, and the outcome compared to use of conventional rules?” The second half of the session will be dedicated to the cohort’s first learning team session and will build on the theme of Equity and Opportunity Gaps by examining Health and Nutrition: Gaps in Whole Child Supports.

Opportunity Gaps are the unequal or inequitable distribution of resources and opportunities—while achievement gap refers to outputs—the unequal or inequitable distribution of educational results and benefits. While learning gaps refer to relative performance of individual student, for example, the disparity between what a student has actually learned and what students are expected to learn at a particular age or grade level. Closing the GAP requires more than just an introduction of a new curriculum, new buzzwords, or the reinvention of old concepts. It requires commitment of community, educators, and families that recognize that closing the Gap comes as price, that we all should be willing to pay. Today we will introduce you to a group of professionals that are committed to closing the Gap.
