Step 1: School Model Exploration
During this initial phase, a group of community members identify an educational need that is not currently met in their community and want to explore the possibility of a different school model. After collecting community feedback, members should be able to answer this question: ‘Are we able to demonstrate that there is both a need for and adequate community support to explore a different school model?’
CPS Dreaming With Community Toolkit
The Community Partnerships Office has put together a toolkit packed with useful resources for collaborative community planning. It is built on a foundation of trust and respect for each community as the leading voice in articulating its dreams for what education services should be.
