Document Number: 5381Community-School Partnerships: The Living Legacy of Healthy Start - This policy brief offers success stories from various sites across California participating in the Health Start State Initiative. The initiative offers both two-year planning grants and five-year operational grants for districts to collaborate with local agencies and community organizations to give children, youth and their families comprehensive, collaborative school-linked supports, services and opportunities. The authors identify keys to the success of community-school partnerships and ways in which policymakers and practitioners can make the most of Healthy Start and its legacy.
