Yesterday, Congressman David Cicilline of Rhode Island unveiled new legislation to strengthen afterschool systems and improve educational outcomes for students across the country. This bill, the Community Partnerships in Education Act, would:
• Ensure strong school-community partnerships for program planning, professional development, school curricula, and student data;
• Strengthen the role of results-oriented intermediaries;
• Advance the growth of effective systems through data sharing;
• Improve program accountability by incorporating academic achievement and 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration as part of measurable program outcomes; and
• Support students in YOUR community!
