Part Two: Summing Up



Figure 5 shows how the basic principles of community schools drive the development of a collaborative leadership structure that enables local leaders to carry out a set of key functions that leads to two results:

(1) An effective, scaled-up system of community schools

(2) Improvements in the lives of children, families, and communities.

Both sets of results are mutually reinforcing—a growing and more effective system serves more children, schools, and families and produces results; in turn, the results set the foundation for further expansion, sustainability, and even greater results over the long term.
