Our Work

ACTS Models in Development

The Alliance generates innovative models of school reform that emanate from sound research and a consistent philosophy of educational resiliency. The Alliance is committed to collaboration as a methodology for social change; its models assume engaged partnership among schools, families, community-based organizations and a variety of stakeholders. A specific process is followed (see diagram), including two unique steps in model development – Stages 2 and 4 – that guarantee full engagement and shared leadership. The following projects are in various stages of that model development process (indicated in parentheses).

Project LIFTT – Learning Ignited by Families and Teachers Together (5)

  • Parent volunteers and teachers working in dyads trained as co-educators in classrooms, planning and implementing activity settings throughout the year.
  • Weekly leadership and professional development sessions.
  • As a collaborative Team, work together to engage other parents and teachers in the development of school culture, addressing identified challenges, with monthly planning sessions.

CUE – Consortium for Urban Education (4)

  • Leaders from across municipalities and districts convene to generate and coordinate partnerships for urban children, aligning university resources with school and family needs.
  • Common goals and district-wide initiatives fueled by university faculty and students, advancing the educational aims of teachers, administrators and parents.

People of the Word (4)

  • A school-community literacy campaign where teachers, parents, and community members select excellent African American children’s books, with guidance from reading experts.
  • Partners and families utilize community book set in a wide range of arts-based literary activities, in classrooms, out-of-school programs, and in homes and celebrate increased engagement

Resiliency Project, SSRR (Safe Space/Restoration Room) (4)

  • Whole-school engagement in cultivating strong, resilient, capable learners who see themselves as competent, resourceful, thriving, and full of hope.
  • A center for climate change where members of the school community heal and cope with stress.

Community Schools Institute (CSI) (3)

  • Excellent, developmental training and curriculum for all those engaged in leading and developing community schools – at the site and district levels.
  • Provides a steady source of leaders (principals, coordinators, program directors, teachers, etc.) who understand the strategy and have the skills to play their roles in it.

LINC (Learning in the Neighborhood Context), Homegrown Teachers (2)

  • Teachers work with community-based partners in meaningful summer internships for teachers; families serve as their mentors; gained wisdom improves classroom practice and partnerships.
  • A specialized pathway for active parent leaders to bring their local wisdom into the teaching profession and provide a stable core of a city’s educator pool.
