Community Schools as an Effective Strategy for Reform. Research Brief
Daniel, Julia; Snyder, Jon David
Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education
Research literature finds that community school models offering various agreed-upon features provide an excellent social return on investment and significant promise for providing opportunities for learning and promoting well-being in students and communities. Community schools show significant promise for addressing barriers to learning and promoting well-being in students and communities. As with much of educational research, the research on community schools is contested terrain because of multiple models, issues of quality, and lack of a consensus on the definition of a community school. There is, however, research literature on the various agreed-upon features of a community school, such as extended time, integrated supports, and family and community engagement. That research literature finds that community school models provide an excellent social return on investments. This brief summarizes the empirical basis for several features of community schools.
