Education Week Previews CCS' New Scaling Up Guide

09/30/11

As more communities implement community schools and find them beneficial, it’s time to take the next step.

The Coalition for Community Schools’ new interactive resource guide Scaling Up School and Community Partnerships: The Community Schools Strategy, profiled in the Education Week’s Beyond Schools blog September 26, provides a rubric for communities looking to bolster and expand its community schools efforts.

The blog highlights the Oakland Unified School District in California and Superintendent Tony Smith’s plans to implement community schools district wide.

As pointed out in the blog, the guide provides a 6-staged approach for any jurisdiction to expand its community schools plan no matter how far along that community is on its path to create these schools. It also shares perspectives from on the ground community school leaders and practitioners, through video.
The Scaling Up guide is available online and includes a section for practitioners and community leaders to upload their own stories and experiences.
