Save the date: Maximizing new federal relief dollars for student success and community development

Maximizing new federal relief dollars
for student success and community development:

A Next Generation Community Schools Forum

12 May, 2021 | Zoom
3:00pm-4:30pm ET

The Biden administration has expressly suggested Community Schools as a solution for district-level use of the COVID-19 relief funds in the U.S. Department of Education’s “back to school” plan. The Task Force on Next Generation Community Schools has put forward a vision of a next generation of Community Schools with specific recommendations to scale nationally, starting with those communities with the greatest need.

The Coalition for Community Schools and the Brookings Institution will host a public forum on 12 May to share promising practices for using new federal funding to expand Community Schools. Ultimately, the goal is to provide practical guidance on how to leverage increased funding for expanding Community Schools in a way that will meet the current moment of student need, build sustainable systems of support, and aid the long- term goals of community development.

Additional details are forthcoming. Until then, please save the date and feel free to share this with any interested colleagues. For questions, please contact ccs@iel.org
