|Participants during a "Chalk Talk" activity|
- 13 statewide and cross-region partners
- 7 superintendents (and a handful of school leadership members)
- 18 afterschool programs
- 6 libraries
The meeting agenda focused on: setting the context for the proposed Calendar 2.0, brainstorming opportunities, creating themes, and discussing next steps.
By the end, the entire group came up with nine themes that needed further exploration: Equity, Intersessions, Funding, Logistics, Communication, Childcare, Transportation, Teacher Contracts, and Learning.

Discussion between school systems and local/regional organizations will continue into the school year. Partners and school leaders will be present at the upcoming Fall Engagements (Oct. 2, Oct. 3, Oct. 9, and Oct. 10) - these locations/times will be scheduled soon.
All participants scribed their thoughts about four questions (the first three questions were done in silence as participants walked around tables with large paper and markers)
