Implementing California’s Historic Investment in Community Schools

Update: On May 18, the California State Board of Education approved the first round of grants out of the $3B California Community Schools Partnership Program (CCSPP) our alliance pushed to win! Learn more about Racially Just, Relationship-Centered Community Schools.

In an enormous victory for low-income students, English learners, students of color, and their families, the California Budget Act of 2021 included an historic $3 billion investment for the Community Schools Partnership Program (CSPP). California now has a unique opportunity to rebuild and reimagine public education through the development of racially- just and relationship-centered community schools that provide wrap-around academic, health, and social-emotional supports, expanded and culturally responsive learning opportunities, and robust family and community engagement.

The legislation gives the California Department of Education significant latitude for implementing the program. With our allies in the California Partnership for the Future of Learning and the Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, a statewide network of more than 200 advocacy organizations and community leaders, we are advocating to ensure the implementation of CSPP includes the voices of families, students, and community stakeholders and is shaped to maximize the transformation of the recipient schools and the system as a whole.
