Document Number: 9705Beyond the School Yard: Pre-K Collaborations with Community-Based Partners - This report for public education administrators examines pre-k collaborations between schools and community-based providers, such as Head Start, child care centers and faith-based organizations. It describes factors that motivate K-12 leaders to pursue these partnerships, what some common barriers are, and what steps they have taken to overcome challenges. It also includes policy recommendations to help state and federal policy makers encourage more schools and community-based programs to work together.
