New Ripon charter school opens with help from Associate Dean Parks

Marguerite Parks, associate dean of the College of Education and Human Services, is on the governance council of Quest Elementary School in Ripon, which opened for its first classes Sept. 1, 2010.

Parks helped write the grants needed to fund the charter school and is actively involved in working with teachers on curriculum, multiculturalism and other topics. Quest Elementary serves more than 170 students in grades 3-5 through a project-based learning model, which incorporates a variety of inquiry-based and technology-based hands-on projects into students’ everyday learning.
