Adler University Going for the GOLD For Clara Barton Elementary

Take a look at a campaign for Clara Barton Elementary, by Adler University students Jill and Mary. They created a campaign aimed at raising money to get some much needed technology resources in our Special Needs classroom (K-4) at Clara Barton Elementary! 



Did you know that in 2013, through the community organizing work of the Greater Auburn-Gresham Development Corporation (GADC), Barton Elementary local school council (LSC), and key community and institutional partners, that Clara Barton Elementary School, was one of the few CPS schools that was taken off of the 2013-2014 school closure list?  

The save our school campaign was based on a compelling story, of all the good work being done in this local community school. It included highlighting three years of the most recent school and staff performance improvement data, a strong organizing voice from parents, and committed classroom support from our local partners. See full article at: Clara Barton Turnaround Story.
