New York State Announces Thirty Community School Grantees

In January 2013, Governor Cuomo established a new Education Reform Commission that recommended community schools as a strategy to help strengthen the academic pipeline from pre-kindergarten through college in some of New York's neediest neighborhoods. The New York State Education Department, in conjunction with the Governor and the Council on Children and Families, had $15 million in competitive grants for selected school districts and community based organizations to transform schools into community schools over 3 years.

This week, the NYS Education Department distributed the first round of the competitive grants. We are pleased that Children's Aid Society, a founder and partner of the Coalition for Community Schools and a national model for the strategy, was one of the thirty grantees accounced earlier this week. Click here for a full list of all community school grantees across New York State.
