Coalition for Community Schools Interactive Guide

The Coalition for Community Schools has released an interactive web-based tool to help school and community leaders understand the community school strategy and learn about building a system of community schools. The guide draws from the work of local community schools initiatives that are directly impacting student achievement, attendance, family engagement, and other factors.  The web-based tool includes stories from successful community school systems and offers videos of community leaders talking about scale-up. See the guide at http://www.communityschools.org/scalingup.
