EDL-6900 Developing School and Community Partnerships

This course prepares school leaders to develop equity-centered partnerships between schools, families, and communities to support the learning and wellbeing of each student. Course topics include promising practices such as culturally responsive leadership, developmental assets, trauma-informed practices, and collaborative models of whole-school reform (e.g., Full-Service Community Schools). Aspiring school leaders will develop an understanding of how to develop and sustain collective responsibility among students, teachers, school personnel, families, and community members to create communities of support where all children can learn and thrive. Activities include designing a school initiative that involves substantive collaboration with one or more community partners and advocating with families or community members to address their needs.
