Community School Models

January 1, 2000

This booklet, which is a work in progress, contains profiles of 26 different community school models which, while unique, each reflect the broad shared vision of the Coalition for Community Schools. The booklet begins with a description of the Coalition’s vision for what a community school looks like and what happens there, and then presents a variety of models, in the hopes that bringing together a collective set of approaches will contribute to the eventual development of a typology of community schools that would help local leaders in the development of community schools. The booklet highlights a variety of city-based efforts and partnerships that benefit from different types of funding and different structures.
