Connecting The Dots in Virginia

Symposium Logo

Discussions about school performance very frequently turn into discussions about the surrounding communities and housing situations. With this in mind, Housing Virginia and the VCU Center for Urban and Regional Development have developed a symposium on the intersection of housing and education policy. Titled “Connecting the Dots Between Where Kids Live and Where They Learn,” this one-day statewide event will describe how approaches to education and housing policy are linked, how school performance and housing quality connect and how these two issues will define the future of Virginia’s communities.

This groundbreaking symposium brings educators, housing experts and public officials together for the first time in Virginia to discuss the important relationship between student success and where and how students live outside the classroom. The presenters will showcase some solutions that can impact the future of Virginia families around the state, and will conclude the event with next steps to continue the dialogue on this important subject.

This promises to be a passionate, informative and complex discussion. The symposium will be held from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18, in the VCU Student Commons Building. Cost is $50 for general registration and $20 for students and teachers. For more information or to register, visit the event website.
