The resources and tools provided below will help leaders design and implement Community Schools in any rural, suburban, urban and tribal community.
Community Schools leaders and practitioners have spent years honing their practice and identifying what works where and under what conditions. The voluntary Community School Site Standards draw on that experience and offers a touchstone of our collective wisdom.
The Community School Site Standards define best practices and are designed to engage and support the Community Schools movement as a standards-driven, evidence-based strategy to promote equity and educational excellence for each and every child. We recognize that creating a Community School is a developmental process, so schools should not be surprised if they are not at high levels of performance on every standard.
