About this grant
This grant will support the San Francisco School Alliance to work in conjunction with the San Francisco Unified School District in implementing a citywide community school expansion effort. This project seeks to build upon the New Day for Learning Initiative to create a citywide model which aligns afterschool, student support services, and community schools through the development of: 1) a full service community school division within the district; and 2) a comprehensive approach to afterschool and expanded learning services that are available for students as part of a community school model. This project will provide policymakers and practitioners with tangible, visible examples of the value of strengthening the linkages between community schools, afterschool programs, and education.
