Integrated Services and Supports in Oakland Community Schools. Knowledge Brief
John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities
This brief is part of a series that shares findings from a research collaboration between the John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University and Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) focused on understanding implementation of the community school model in the district. This brief highlights findings related to integrated service delivery in OUSD community schools, specifically examining services related to health and wellness, expanded learning, and family engagement. Previous research has demonstrated that student and family participation in such support services is often associated with improved student outcomes. While student services take many forms, research shows that integration is key to successful implementation. Integration entails both combining and coordinating a range of student supports to facilitate seamless service provision, as well as incorporating these supports as fundamental components of the life and academic mission of a school. [The Gardner Center would like to acknowledge our OUSD partners as well as the Kaiser Foundation Hospital Fund for Community Benefit Programs at East Bay Community Foundation for their support.
