Education reporters are welcome to meet new sources and find story ideas at the Leadership Development Conference on School, Family and Community Partnerships led by researchers from Johns Hopkins University. Approximately 200 educators, school administrators, community leaders and parents from across the country will be attending the two-day event, designed to help them develop research-based partnership programs that will strengthen ties between families, communities and schools for student success. Speakers from the university's National Network of Partnership Schools will address several topics, including implementing partnerships to help make the "American dream" a reality for immigrant families, using technology to involve families in education, and how to implement an interactive homework program known as Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS), which helps families become more involved in their children's learning activities.

The conference includes a reception from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 14, when conference attendees will present posters and share selected successful school/community activities and leadership approaches.
