Pitfalls

  • Not taking the time to scan the environment to see what else is happening that could support or derail a community schools strategy.

  • Failing to reach out to key leaders of other collaborative efforts whose assets are vital to the success of the community schools scale-up effort.

  • Overlooking what is already happening in particular schools that could demonstrate the power of a scaled-up system of community schools.

  • Neglecting the value of a powerful vision for mobilizing the entire community.

  • Not being transparent about the work and aggressively seeking out additional stakeholders.
