Description: Daniel Barkowitz, Ass’t.
The 2018 FCAN Summit features four general sessions and 30 breakout sessions. More than 50 speakers will highlight latest developments in college access, postsecondary success, college affordability, career readiness and workforce development, data and measurement, and collective impact.
For the first time ever, our FPN's Education Affinity Group will host a full-day convening with education funders, representatives from the district and state levels and local education foundation leaders. Don't miss this unique opportunity to develop and strengthen partnerships across Florida’s education sector to ensure excellent instruction.
What are the characteristics of the nation’s high schools with the lowest graduation rates? What evidence-based practices are making a difference in closing achievement gaps? Commissioner Stewart will summarize recent research from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education with a focus on takeaways for Florida on putting all students on a path to success.
Moving the needle to create equity is no easy task. In order to create measurable change, foundations and other educational organizations must be willing to take risks and try new innovative approaches to support students. During this webinar, participants will learn about work that the Helios Education Foundation, Florida Philanthropic Network and the Florida College Access Network are leading in compiling such practices and innovative programs.
Join Florida College Access Network and change makers from throughout our state to explore the policies, practices, and partnerships poised to break down barriers to ensure all students, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education, have the preparation, resources, and support they need to achieve a postsecondary education.

Moving the needle to create equity is no easy task. In order to create measurable change, foundations and other educational organizations must be willing to take risks and try new, nontraditional approaches to support students. During this session, attendees learned about new practices and innovative programs highlighted in a recently published white paper authored by Helios Education Foundation. The session will also include roundtable discussions facilitated by experts with practical experience creating and administering innovative approaches to support student success. Attendees left the session with an understanding of how nontraditional approaches such as emergency scholarships, wraparound supports, Promise scholarships, and performance-based scholarships can be applied to promote postsecondary success among traditionally underserved students.
