Partnering So Students Learn and Thrive - The Coalition Releases New Messaging and Framework



The Coalition for Community Schools is happy to announce the release of our new brief, Community Schools: A Whole Child Framework for School Improvement and the release of our refreshed Community Schools Messaging.

Our new community schools framework brief describes key
components of community schools and makes the case to states and districts to consider community schools as a 
core strategy for school improvement. The brief also includes:

• Description of the community school framework
• How states can support community 
• Profiles of exemplary community schools
• Resources
• Infographics 

Student-centered learning is also echoed throughout our new Community School Messaging which explicitly identifies a Community School as a public  school, a hub of its neighborhood, uniting families, educators and community partners to provide all students with top-quality academics, enrichment, health and social services, and opportunities to succeed in school and in life.

We encourage you to share with your networks and show your support by using the Framework Brief and implementing the Community School  Messaging in all facets of your work.
