The Common Ground Speaker Series is a parent education consortium on the San Francisco Peninsula. Each year we present a slate of cutting-edge speakers, topics and special events designed to inform, engage and inspire our school communities.
Common Ground began with eight member schools in 2002. Today, we represent more than 15,000 families at 44 schools, stretching from Hillsborough to San Jose. Our events take place at a variety of venues on the Peninsula and showcase the most current thoughts on education, health and parenting. The 2020-2021 Series will take place live online.
Parents, faculty and staff at our 44 member schools attend the Common Ground online events free of charge. Faculty and educators from non-member schools are also invited to attend free of charge. Guests from non-member schools and the general community are welcome to register and attend virtual live stream events for a $20 fee.
Common Ground is led by representatives from each member school. Together, we work to provide a forum for parents and educators to learn, strategize and develop a sense of shared community.
We invite you to join us this season to explore innovative ways to keep our families, schools and communities strong in the 21st century.
