Connecting, learning, and collaborating with researchers and practitioners from the Community Schools field
Practitioners and researchers are encouraged to join and connect with, share, learn from, and collaborate with those in the Community Schools field and receive timely announcements of new research and funding opportunities. Those outside of these roles are also welcomed to join to learn more about Community Schools.
Please use this form to share your updated research and publications with IEL CCS RPN. We will update our database regularly, and share the research and publications with all Coalition for Community Schools (CCS) networks.
In collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships, IEL’s Coalition for Community Schools Research Practice Network hosted a three-day virtual convening in July 2020 to develop a national Community Schools Research Agenda. The convening, “Powerful Learning: How Community Schools Support Learning and Thriving Students, Families, and Communities” brought together over 60 multi disciplinary researchers and practitioners who have contributed to the community schools knowledge base. Participants spent time in facilitated break out groups co-creating a national research agenda for community schools, and brainstormed topics, questions, processes, and methods to prioritize as we seek to grow and support the community schools movement. Finally, participants considered how to enact the Research Agenda and articulated their individual role in advancing the work. Click here to see the research agenda.
