Back-to-school season is upon us once again. This is your chance to show off innovations you introduced during the summer in your community and schools.

  • Many cities have been looking at how they can increase student interest in the local government process. A couple of plans from Missouri and Illinois cities can be found here.
  • Other local governments focused on bringing their citizens, young and old, outside for some good old-fashioned human interaction. Details on getting a community outside and moving can be found here.
  • If you’re still looking for some ideas, check out this list from the ICMA Town and Gown topic area. The list includes great examples of partnering with your local university.
  • You can never be too prepared. Take a peek at this blog and find out if you are following the best emergency procedures before your students arrive back on campus.

Did you introduce a fine idea that you know your students and community will love? Share them with us below!
