All schools, community schools

CSLX works directly with districts, municipal agencies, community-based organizations, and the state-wide system of support to build and strengthen community school strategies.


At CSLX, we believe all young people deserve access to relationship-centered, supportive, and equitable school communities where learning is culturally-rooted, inclusive, rigorous, and relevant.

Community schools offer an opportunity to co-create with educators, students, families, community partners, and public agencies to transform the way we do school.

We need each other to succeed.
