The Coalition for Community Schools believes that strong communities require strong schools and strong schools require strong communities. We envision a future in which schools are centers of thriving communities where everyone belongs, works together, and succeeds. The Coalition advances opportunities for the success of children, families and communities by promoting the development of more, and more effective, community schools. The Coalition for Community Schools is housed at the Institute for Educational Leadership in Washington, DC.
