   Community of Practice Update

From the Fordham NYC CSTAC:

How do we meet the needs of new and developing community school directors in the face of unprecedented challenges and unlimited demands on their time and attention?

Fordham University’s NYC CSTAC is building on its foundational work with new Community School Directors with a Community of Practice to address these challenges.

During biweekly meetings throughout the fall semester, NYC CSDs will gather to share best practices and celebrate successes, while also receiving guidance and support from their colleagues and CSTAC staff while they navigate the community school landscape as all NYC schools return to full in-person instruction.

CSDs interested in joining this CoP can email for more information.
