School-Community Partnership Toolkit

Youth Development Executives of King County (YDEKC) has compiled a set of tools designed to improve coordination between educators and community partners working toward holistic student success. This toolkit draws from a number of sources: most notably, a similar project undertaken by the Oakland Unified School District.

YDEKC’s online toolkit is organized into five sections:

  1. Assessing Readiness
  2. Mapping Needs and Assets
  3. Establishing Partnership
  4. Working Together
  5. Evaluating Programs

Contents include:

  • Self-assessment rubrics related to core partnership features
  • Tip sheets covering a range of partnership activities
  • Templates and planning tools to put learning into practice

YDEKC’s School Community Partnership Toolkit resources can be used alone or in combination, and most can be adapted to suit a more specific purpose.
