Stages of Development for
The State Coalition Stages of Development serve as a guide for states as they build or scale their State Coalition for Community Schools with a focus on four strategies: Policy and Advocacy, Professional Learning Networks, Communications, and Partner Engagement and Governance. State Coalitions for Community Schools often progress through the stages of development at a different pace for each of the four strategies, depending on local momentum and context, therefore this guide is broken into the four separate strategies. Included in each strategy are best practice examples collected from existing State Coalitions for Community Schools and additional contextual resources. The Coalition for Community Schools would like to thank the State Coalition for Community Schools Network participants for sharing their input and expertise in the creation of this guide.
