About this grant

This grant will continue to provide support to the Coalition for Community Schools, a project of the Institute for Educational Leadership. The coalition began through a series of meetings beginning in 1998 and emerged as a more formal entity in 2000 to give a united voice to organizations and institutions from different sectors that are committed to developing and maintaining community schools. The coalition will continue its efforts to build and mobilize a strong network of partners and educate the public and policymakers about the vision of community schools. Specifically, the coalition will continue the implementation of its strategic plan which aims to develop more effective community schools that will benefit children and youth.
