Measuring Social Return on Investment for Community Schools:  A Case Study. This case study documents the process of applying social return on investment (SROI) analysis to measure the economic value of two community schools operated by The Children's Aid Society, in partnership with the New York City Department of Education, in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods ─ PS 5 and Salomé Ureña. The case study details each step of the data-gathering and measurement process and provides convincing evidence of the value of outcomes for students, families, and school communities.
