GRADUATION is the focus of the Spring 2015 edition of Confluence. We report on the signing of the service mark agreement with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) that heralds collaboration between two national organizations serving education in the U.S., get reports From the Field on what collaboration looks like in four different school communities, and hear from four seniors who will graduate in June from three Alliance member high schools.
Fall 2014 Vol. 4 No.1
FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: COLLABORATION
This Fall 2014 edition of Confluence explores the collaborative nature of our work. We look at key relationships in the classroom with Anna Jacopetii, hear from Christof Weichert about how Child Study enlivens a faculty, and learn about threefold governance at a school in Alaska. You’ll find a report on a successful district partnership on a bond issue for site improvements, and collaboration on a breakfast program that’s serves over 200 students daily regardless of ability to pay.
Interim Board President Shanna Mall reflects on what’s been accomplished since the Alliance was founded, and Confluence Editor Chip Romer thanks Will Stapp and Stephanie Skinner for their critical roles in the evolution of the Alliance and its work toward the deepening of Public Waldorf Education. Information on the Alliance’s 2015 Mini-Grant RFP for new initiative and developing schools can be found on page 8.
