State Policy

State Policy

The Coalition supports leaders to advocate for supportive policy and funding for community schools and a whole-child approach at the state level, primarily through our support of state coalitions. To learn more about the state coalitions network and to join or start one, go here.

Review supportive state policies introduced or passed to support community schools in the Community Schools Playbook that the Coalition contributed to, along with other partners.

Also check out the 2023 State Legislative Session Calendar, created by NCSL, to find the session dates for your state.

To learn more or connect on policy development and/or advocacy support for state policy, contact policy@iel.org.


We also recommend you join your state’s coalition for community schools or help start one!
