Children's Aid Society Moving Community Schools Forward in New York City

Children’s Aid Society Wins i3 Grant
The Coalition congratulates the Children’s Aid Society as one of the development grant winners for the Investing in Innovation (i3) grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The Children’s Aid Society will use this grant to create a Parent Leadership Institute. As explained in CAS’ project summary, "CAS proposes to bring the full set of parent engagement strategies piloted in one highly distressed NYC community (Washington Heights) to another, that of the South Bronx, to verify whether inschool parent resource centers – with parent coordinators trained in utilizing a specific set of parent communication, outreach, and organizing strategies, and adult education classes and leadership institutes – lead to increases in student achievement. CAS shares this award with 24 other districts and their nonprofit partners that are splitting a share of the $135 million.
