Districts Embrace the Community to Benefit All Students
Weinzapfel, Patricia
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n5 p25-30 Feb 2018
Moving from a traditional school district to one that embraces a community schools model requires fundamental shifts in organizational structure and practices. Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation in southern Indiana and Vancouver Public Schools in Vancouver, Wash., are two districts that have navigated this change. Leaders from those districts describe their efforts to learn from data, build community support and staff buy in, leverage assets, build infrastructure, develop policies and procedures, and plan for sustaining their initiative.
