A partnership goal is to create a deeper connection between and among community members and the education of young people in our community. Using and supporting our community resources is a core principle of the partnership.
This learning partnership was built on Peter Senge’s model of “ Getting the community involved in the education of youth by using resources we already have.” An inspiration for this is a quote from John Dewey that says, “ What the wisest parent wants for their child, should the wisest community want for all children.”
By bringing parents, educators and community together,we will build a stronger community. The members of the community will feel a sense of belonging and be rooted to a community that listens and values the talents of it's citizens. We hope to all share the vision of our youth being our future, and the importance of their educational experience being inspirational and relevant.
We are proud of the passion and dedication of our community partners.

Through the Parent Partnership, Gull Lake offers opportunities to integrate learning, bringing relevance to academics.
The present day approach to education is about basic information transfer. Integrated learning is about discovering relationships between various aspects of one’s experience. A learner then engages in the process of sense-making: elaborating, refining, and putting that process to routine use in everyday life. This is something which is done naturally from birth, provided nothing inhibits or interferes with it. As long as the learner is allowed to “lead the way” and is treated with respect in their curious moments, this type of learning continues to happen. As a result, more and more relationships are created, thus developing a greater knowledge and understanding base, which leads to wisdom.
Some of our virtual classes have labs available that give students the ability to put learning into action.
