Building Local Sustainability
In 2013, Beyond School Bells (a program of Nebraska Children and Families Foundation) initiated the Nebraska Statewide Coalition of Community-wide ELO Systems—which is an informal partnership between Beyond School Bells and school-community ELO partnerships in multiple communities across Nebraska. For more information about this Coalition, click here.
Beyond School Bells has created a free resource guide and toolkit to help ELO programs strengthen their quality and long-term sustainability through the development of local partnerships and creation of community-wide ELO systems.
