Celebrating Two Inaugurations

Email Twitter Facebook MySpace Stumble Upon Digg | More |

We are happy to offer the inaugural issue of Partnership Press, an electronic newsletter designed to provide updates and analyses about community schools in New York City as well as across the nation and around the world. We timed our launch to coincide with the presidential inauguration in the U.S., and we chose the theme “Community Schools: Democracy in Action” as a way to highlight one of the key benefits of the community schools strategy − its focus on active citizen engagement in supporting student achievement, family well-being and school success.

Sustain What You've Started

The Children's Aid Society views sustainability as involving not only aggressive fundraising but also public relations, constituency-building and advocacy. This approach is consistent with that recommended by The Finance Project, a non-profit policy research organization that helps develop creative ways of financing children’s services.

Making the Case for Community Schools

The first part of making the case involves thoroughly understanding the Community Schools concept. We encourage you to read The Children's Aid Society's books: Building a Community School (2001) (click here for free download) and Community Schools in Action: Lessons from a Decade of Practice (2005), available from Oxford University Press.
