New Schools for Baton Rouge’s third Education Ecosystem Summit is an opportunity for the Baton Rouge community to join together on behalf of our city’s children. Together–parents, community leaders, and heads of nonprofits and local businesses–will articulate a vision for Baton Rouge education, celebrate the progress made, and recommit to the work ongoing. We will collaborate around solutions to priority challenges in the short term and surface challenges to solve for over the long term. By coming together, we ensure that the solutions we put in place now and in the future are responsive to the needs of students and families.
