Gestalt Community Schools
Quality Education - $25,000 Grantee
Through strategic partnerships, the K-12 public charter school operator focuses on building high-performing schools, tackling out-of-school challenges, and revitalizing neighborhoods. With the Community Foundation grant, Gestalt will launch the Parent Village Project, which will include establishing a Parent Resource Center and a parent teams and liaisons structure at all five of its schools. The project will promote ongoing, school-based support and mentoring to the families of its 2,200 students to mitigate factors that impact the success of its low-income, predominantly minority students.
