STAGE 2: DEVELOP AN OPERATING FRAMEWORK
OVERVIEW

In Stage 2, the focus shifts to the shared ownership of a scaled-up community schools system. Community schools initiatives are organized in many ways (as demonstrated in Part Four), but their basic infrastructure typically connects community-wide and site activities through an intermediary responsible for planning, management, and coordination. Using the Collaborative Leadership Framework presented in Part Two as a guide, school and community partners focus on developing strategic leadership and a multilevel communication and accountability structure. Partners discuss how to meet the future needs of the initiative’s core functions and begin to the clarify roles and responsibilities of community-wide and site leaders. They also start to plan for intermediary management and coordination.
