Phase #3: Capstone Summit (June 6-7, 2012)
In June 2012, Phase III of the Mayor’s Education Summit took place with a two day Capstone Summit. Participants from the November 2011 Summit and representatives from the Community Conversations convened to review citizen comments from the Community Conversations and finalize recommendations for several high-leverage reforms and develop an action plan to move them forward.
Citizen comments from the Community Conversations were compiled into The Future of K-12 Education in Anchorage: Report on Community Conversations and portrayed in a video that was presented at the Capstone Summit. The report helped Capstone participants to better understand the community's priorities and trade-offs it is willing to make as choices are faced in how to best improve student performance.
