Community Schools in Action: Lessons from a Decade of Practice presents the Children's Aid Society's (CAS) approach to creating community schools for the 21st century. CAS began this work in New York City more than a decade ago and today operates thirteen such schools in the low-income neighborhoods of Washington Heights, East Harlem, and the Bronx. Through a technical assistance center operated by CAS, hundreds of other schools across the country and the world are adapting this model.
