    EdVestors recently announced the finalists presenting at their 12th Annual Urban Education Investment Showcase.  The Showcase is an opportunity for donors – whether individuals, giving circles, or foundations – to select their own grantees from a pool of pre-vetted, high-quality education initiatives.  At the Showcase, project leaders present their cases for support directly before likely and potential donors.

    At this year's showcase, one of the finalists presenting their ideas for improving schools and outcomes for students is VSA MA COOL Schools partner Henderson K-12 Inclusion Innovation School.  The new Henderson K-12 school is a merger of the very popular, full-inclusion Henderson Elementary School and the Harbor Middle and High Schools to create the only seamless pathway in Boston for students with significant special needs from kindergarten through high school graduation.  The Henderson Elementary is widely recognized as one of the most successful inclusion schools where students with significant special needs - of all disability types - learn side-by-side with their general education peers, and where all students have demonstrated high achievement.  If selected at the EdVestors showcase, the funding will provide the professional development and support needed to prepare all teachers to effectively implement this model of instruction.  In turn, the Henderson will become a best practice site for other schools in the district.

    Where: City Year Headquarters, 287 Columbus Avenue, Boston
    Cost: Free
    RSVP: Eventbrite
