A Handbook for State Policy Leaders - Community Schools
Improving Student Learning / Strengthening Schools, Families, and Communities

This report is a primer to guide state policymakers, governors, state legislators, chief state school officers, and leaders of other state agencies realize the vision of community schools. It describes specific actions that leaders can take to "grow" community schools in their states. The handbook also is useful to local elected officials and local decision makers.
