Making the Case for Community Schools

New Framework Brief and Messaging Guide

April 12, 2017

3:00-4:00 PM EST

Join us for a deep dive into new resources to make the case for community schools.

The Coalition’s new brief, Community Schools: A Whole-Child Framework for School Improvement, positions the community schools strategy as an effective option as the Every Student Succeeds Act moves toward implementation.

Learn about the new community schools framework and graphics, and how to advocate to your state and local leaders to include community schools in their ESSA plans.

Also learn about our new messaging guide, which will help you talk about community schools effectively to anyone including your neighbors, peers, and policymakers.


  • Mary Kingston Roche, Director of Public Policy, Coalition for Community Schools

Come with questions, insights, and ideas for our Q&A session after the presentation.

Hosted by the Coalition for Community Schools at the Institute for Educational Leadership
