Summary:

This guidebook is primarily addressed to school leaders who want to expand their efforts to help children and families succeed. It illustrates how principals, teachers, and other members of a school staff can reach out to families and the community to build a system of strong support for the healthy development and learning of their children. These broad-based alliances use a range of strategies to build individual skills and local opportunities; improve access to education, health care, and human services; and combine, coordinate, and align community resources and systems. Specific chapters cover: (1) building collaborative partnerships; (2) conducting a community assessment; (3) finding and developing resources; (4) evaluating school-linked strategies; (5) moving from vision to action; and (6) maintaining momentum in collaboration. Two appendices list federal support for links between schools and comprehensive strategies, and suggested resources. (Contains 21 references.)
