The Role of Community Schools

A new report documents the work of placed-based initiatives (such as Promise Neighborhoods) to improve the lives of children and families.
Information Update
July 23, 2013

The Role of Community Schools in Place-Based Initiatives shows how community schools align resources across systems to maximize their impact, and how they motivate local partners to adapt a common set of goals and metrics to track their work. Case studies include Portland and Multnomah County, Ore., Seattle and King County, Wash., and the Los Angeles Education Partnership. The report was done by the Coalition for Community Schools and several of its partners.
