Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) staffs the Coalition for Community Schools. The Coalition has its own Steering Committee who decides on the Coalition's policy and strategies and also provides oversight of its activities.
For more than thirty-five years, the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL)-a non-profit, nonpartisan organization based in Washington, DC-has worked to achieve better results for children and youth. At the heart of IEL’s effectiveness is a unique ability to bring people together to identify and resolve issues across policy, program, and sector boundaries. As a natural outgrowth of IEL’s work, diverse networks have been created and nurtured.
Today, IEL is working to help individuals and institutions increase their capacity to work together. We are building and supporting a cadre of diverse leaders, strengthening the capacity of education and related systems, and informing the development and implementation of policies. Our efforts are focused through four programs of work: Developing Leaders; Strengthening School-Family-Community Connections; Connecting and Improving Systems that Serve Children and Youth; and Improving Preparation for Work.
