The Toolkit includes four kinds of resources:
Tool: Customizable resources, e.g., program observations;
Sample: Documents used by five urban districts and their partners, e.g., staff handbooks, position descriptions and enrollment forms;
Tip Sheet: Additional advice from field experts on how to use materials on each topic;
Guidance: For each tool, sample, and tip sheet, an explanation of what it is, why it’s important (with connections to research), who can benefit from it and tips for effective use.
In addition, the
Summer Planning Calendar and
Sustainability Tools include detailed companion and facilitation guides with tips to help you develop your planning process.
