California Partnership Academy Model
How to take new and existing academies and inject them with new life that will help the students to feel like one family. Ideas on how to help students to gain that camaraderie that we all expected to develop when we started academies, but that sometimes can use a boost. Examples include use of homerooms, social activities outside of academics alone, incentives for effort, breakfasts, service, competitions, collaborative projects, and other skills and activities outside of the traditional academy core.
