AmeriCorps VISTAs Caroline Bell and Evelyn Ahnrud hosted a community summit on April 27th that focused on chronic absenteeism and family engagement in Grundy County schools. Caroline and Evelyn have been working on these pressing issues since August 2017 through a partnership with SCCF and the Grundy County Department of Education. The research they shared included a community survey completed by 900+ teachers, students, and parents. The event also featured panels made up of state and local officials and community representatives. Many thanks to Caroline and Evelyn for their hard work and to those who came out to support their efforts.
