Collaboratives are regularly occurring communities of practice that come together for professional development and networking. Together, participants create a cross-sector community for Milwaukee school leaders and other education professionals to share challenges and successes, and get better together for the students they serve.

Collaboratives bring together participants that span school types, instructional models, and personal politics to support one another and share best practices. Attendees leave each Collaborative with practical tools they can begin using that same day.
