Coalition Update: Report to the Field

The Coalition is very pleased to announce a new resource to help prepare principals to work more effectively with families and communities. Click here to visit the website. As the community schools movement grows, it is indisputable that principals are key players. This new resource offers research and tools that principals can use to hone their own knowledge and skills, and that principal preparation and professional development programs can use as well.

The guide covers the following topics:

  • Asset Mapping
  • Community-Based Learning
  • Community Organizing
  • Cultural Competence
  • Community Schools
  • Family Involvement
  • Home Visiting
  • Public Engagement
  • Youth Development

We are asking users to provide us with contact information to access so that the Coalition can expand its database of community school leaders and advocates.Click here to visit the website. Please suggest additional resources and comment on the website via email at:

The Coalition for Community Schools is grateful to the MetLife Foundation for their support in the development of this on-line resource guide.
