Resources from IEL Coalition for Community Schools
Community Schools: Supporting One Another as a Blueprint for the Future provides examples of how Community Schools effectively responded to the pandemic, highlighting how Community Schools operate through collaborative leadership / recommendations for state and local educators, community leaders, and others on how to leverage Community Schools as a core strategy for communities to efficiently and effectively recover while transforming education and accelerating economic mobility.
Six Strategies to Build Empowering Youth Engagement is a guide for professionals and youth, created by the Coalition's Next Generation Coalition to create greater awareness of youth (ages 12-25) experiences throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, highlight recommendations and examples of how different communities have been able to address and meet the needs of youth, provide a process to develop and implement empowering youth engagement strategies. 


The C/W CS TAC provides technical assistance to school districts and their cross-sector partners integrating a Community Schools approach into a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework. This approach promotes alignment and integration of evidence-based practices for academic, social/emotional, behavioral, and health needs.

We offer support in building upon the existing strengths of school districts to remove barriers to learning and support the whole child, family, and community through technical assistance that includes:
  • Regional Events
  • Webinars
  • Site Visits
  • Phone Consultation
  • Communities of Practice
For more information, email us at



Using schools as hubs, community schools bring educators, families, and community partners together to offer a wide range of opportunities, supports, and services to students, as well as their families and communities.

Community schools:
  • Provide expanded learning opportunities that are motivating and engaging during the school day, after school, and in the summer
  • Offer integrated health and social supports and services
  • Engage families and communities as assets in the lives of their children
