CEISL is partnered with a number of local school and community organizations for the 2022-2023 academic year and beyond.

Brookside School 54

At Brookside, we design tailored professional development based on the interests and needs of the teachers, centering on equity, inclusion and intentional uses of technology for teaching and learning. This professional development occurs every month after school. We provide support in design and implementation of a Math Intervention Studio, which operates onsite and supports students in grades 3-6 during three class sessions per week.

The focus in the math studio is the culturally relevant teaching of mathematics centering on thinking about, visualization of and writing mathematical word problems as well as math fundamentals. An after-school STEM studio provides a group of students with hands-on STEM learning one time a week with a culminating photography exhibit.

Thomas Gregg Neighborhood School

At Thomas Gregg, we design and facilitate whole-staff professional development focusing on equitable and inclusive teaching and learning. We meet one time a month through the 2022-2023 academic year.

John Boner Center

CEISL currently partners with the FACES staff of the John Boner Center for initiatives with Brookside School 54. The FACES serve as family-facing liasons and coordinators. These particular staff coordinators provide program support, insight and social services to families and caregivers who have students that attend Brookside School 54.

Additionally, the IU School of Education collaborates with the John Boner Center to host learning opportunities that educate growing scholars on how to situate teaching in community contexts. Dr. Cristina Santamaria Graff, Associate Professor of Urban Teacher Education at IUPUI, works with CEISL staff to host programs at the John Boner Center in partnership with families and caregivers. These programs were part of a series titled Family As Faculty, in which pre-service education students attended workshops at the John Boner Center that amplified family and caregiver voice through engaging discussion that highlight the importance of community voice as an insightful tool for shaping teaching experiences in classroom settings.
