UnifiEd’s Video Launch Block Party is Saturday from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at UnifiEd’s office at 1609 McCallie Ave.

Last year, UnifiEd launched the Hamilton County Public School Guide, providing an easy way for people to access state and local education data about each of the county's schools.

But the data doesn't offer a complete picture of what's taking place in schools, said Jonas Barriere, executive director of UnifiEd, a local education advocacy nonprofit organization.

So UnifiEd is creating a series of videos highlighting the climate of every school in the district, and it will host a block party Saturday to roll out the first batch of videos. Starting at 3:30 p.m., the community is invited to eat ice cream and popcorn while learning about schools in districts across the county.
