Recommendation for Reauthorization of ESEA
Communities In Schools is working very hard to include language within ESEA that will enable federal funding to support our entire network and the young people we serve.
Congress is working to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which represents the federal government’s largest commitment to K-12 education. The reauthorization of this legislation provides an amazing opportunity to generate significant support for the Communities In Schools network.
We are working to amend the ESEA to include a competitive grant that would fund nonprofits and schools working together to provide integrated student services. This proposal, if included in the legislation, would allow Communities In Schools’ local affiliates to effectively compete for federal resources to fund their work in schools.
This policy document outlines the recommendations as well as the rationale to support this initiative.
However, to accomplish this, we need your support. Want to learn how you can help? E-mail Dan Fuller, vice president of legislative relations, at email@example.com.

90% of proceeds go directly to student services. Help make a difference.
