Leaders of the Davenport Community Schools, City of Davenport and ISU Extension and Outreach visited the Monroe Elementary Stepping Stones program on Tuesday, May 15th. Leaders toured the program and met in a planning session for the collaboration. Begun in 1999 the partnership has grown to serve every public elementary school in Davenport, Blue Grass and Buffalo with low or no cost after school and summer enrichment programming. The partnership has become a national and even international model, recently hosting a delegation from Chile visiting on the North Scott Rotary International Exchange program. Program leaders have also visited Haiti to support revitalization efforts and train Haitian educators on the after school and summer enrichment model.
