As part of our commitment to advancing community schools strategies, we joined the Partnership for the Future of Learning to create an interactive map of stories about community schools and the impact they’re having across the U.S. The stories published on the map show how community schools strategies work in different places and at different stages of development.
Stay tuned as we develop more stories as part of our work to support community schools across California. The UCLA Center for Community Schooling, in partnership with the Alameda County Office of Education, the National Education Association, and Californians for Justice, represent California’s State Transformational Assistance Center for the California Community Schools Partnerships Program. This ambitious and historic initiative seeks to expand community schools across the state to create responsive school settings that build on the assets and strengths of their local communities.
The artwork on this website was part of a larger public school mural project at the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools in May 2016. The UCLA Community School is one of six autonomous schools that share the RFK campus in the central Los Angeles neighborhood of Pico Union/Koreatown.
