While we recommend joining us for the entire six-week program, you may register and drop in at any time! Your Zoom link will be valid for all dates. Check out each event listing for supplies needed for that day’s activity

CL4ME Design Team Presents
Structured, collaborative practices to discuss opportunities to reimagine education in Maine
While many individuals and families are struggling to manage the logistics of COVID-19 for our children and students, the pandemic has also revealed the problems and inequities of our current education systems. How might we capitalize on the opportunities for systemic change that now exist? What are the new partnerships, structures, expectations and outcomes we could explore during and after the time of COVID-19? All are welcome to participate.
