The community school strategy has proven effective in improving academic outcomes for students. It’s well-accepted among community school practitioners that a crucial piece of this strategy is the Coordinator. ABC Community School Partnership contracted with Apex to conduct a study to examine the return on investment (ROI) of a Community School Coordinator. The ROI App is the first part of the new Community Schools Data Hub. The ROI App and Data Hub will help community schools collect and report data to advocate for community schools locally and nationally.

This app is designed to maximize usefulness of data, increase efficiency and consistency in data collection processes, increase accuracy and credibility in data reporting, and elevate schools’ ongoing evaluation efforts. To learn more, visit the Community Schools Data Hub page.
