This e-case highlights the leadership and management of a cross-sector collaborative through its implementation of a community school approach in a low-socioeconomic, highly diverse neighborhood in Duluth, Minnesota. The Grant Community School Collaborative (GCSC), housed in Myers-Wilkins Elementary School, has been building on the strategies of the Community School model for over 15 years. Using the principles of this model, the GCSC has evolved a seamless School Day-Out of School Time approach to providing integrated, community-supported learning experiences that provide high-quality instruction, hands- on experiential learning, an emphasis on multicultural perspectives, and socio-emotional supports.
