The Coalition for Community Schools has also developed a Rational and Results Framework, which makes the case for community schools as a primary vehicle for increasing student success and strengthening families and community. We also, define specific results that community schools seek—both in terms of how they function and in relationship to the well being of students, families and communities. To help you collect data in these 9 results areas, we have created step by step Community Schools Evaluation Toolkit. To learn more about a specific result, click on the corresponding box below.
