Join StreetSchool Network
StreetSchool Network™ welcomes inquiries from community leaders who are interested in opening a school based on the StreetSchool Model in their city, as well as from existing schools that desire StreetSchool Network™ membership and are willing to enter the StreetSchool Network™ Accreditation Process. The required process for these inquiries is as follows:
Step 1: Inquiry
Interested party contacts StreetSchool Network™ Network Coordinator, Kacy Leyba (720-515-5776); Kacy.Leyba@StreetSchoolNetwork.org, to discuss their vision and to evaluate whether the core values of the organization inquiring and the StreetSchool Network™ are compatible.
Step 2: StreetSchool Model Alignment
The interested party is put in contact with Director of School Services, Laurel Christensen (720-425-1642); LaurelC@StreetSchoolNetwork.org, who will describe the StreetSchool model and discuss the next steps to membership. This dialogue allows the inquiring party to gain a better understanding of what is involved in running a StreetSchool and what it means to be a member of StreetSchool Network™. It also allows the StreetSchool Network™ staff to make assessments and plans regarding needed support and services.
Step 3: Application
A completed application packet is returned to StreetSchool Network™ when the school decides to join, with a non-refundable membership fee.
Step 4: Site Visit
A site visit and training session are scheduled for StreetSchool Network™ staff to visit the school or potential school site, conduct board training, assist with problem-solving and fundraising, and to develop either a start-up plan or a plan for continuous school improvement. For an operating school, strategic planning will take place and a discussion to establish a timeline for the accreditation process. Member schools are also given full access to StreetSchool Network™ Member Portal at this time.
