In the October Whole Child Podcast, we explored how schools and communities are using community conversations to ensure that schools and communities are working together to support the whole child. Our guests shared how community conversations have increased the understanding of the whole child approach to learning, improved decision making that is informed by community input, and created a shared commitment to pursue recommendations that focus on the whole child.
