Through an online curriculum and network engagement, the Communities in Schools Racial Equity Initiative builds awareness of the structural racism framework as it impacts the achievement gap of the students of color who are served. The curriculum, entitled Raising Achievement and Closing Gaps Using the Communities In Schools Model, includes a participant guide, trainer guide and accompanying PowerPoint as tools that build knowledge and skills, and it incorporates best practices of closing the achievement gap using the structural racism framework. The curriculum has launched as an online, interactive course for its Site Coordinator Certification Program. The use of this online knowledge management and its YouTube race equity channel help to reach more than 5,000 professionals and 53,000 volunteers about Communities In Schools’ racial equity work.
