Book Description

This book provides a roadmap for the journey which begins when a traditional school decides to end its isolation from its community. Community Learning Centers provide teachers, administrators, parents, and community leaders with the tools they need to achieve important educational goals which include: high level student performance, after school programs which support student learning and provide enrichment activities in a safe environment, the acquisition of essential technological skills by both students and members of the community, expanding leadership opportunities for teachers, students and the community, and unlocking the storehouse of resources in the community to support the education of our youth.
