OneWorld Answers Questions about Funding of Charter, Intra-district...

This article titled: Magnet Schools Attract Mobile Families has generated many questions about how the New Haven Magnet Schools system works, and what are the funding levels for regular public schools, Lighthouse schools, Intra-district and Inter-district magnet schools, Project Choice and Charter schools. 

OneWorld appreciates all those who have taken the time to post comments and ask thoughtful questions. There is a great deal of information on the New Haven Public Schools web site at: www.nhps.net  However, we have sought to find specific answers (from various authorities) to questions asked of us.  Answers to questions about the funding of Charter Schools are also posted to the article on the New Haven Independent web site linked above. 

In terms of public school funding, we got answers from the State Department of Education (SDE), the CT Legislature, and the New Haven Public Schools (NHPS) Central Office.   Many people are asking what exactly are Lighthouse Schools, and how long have they been around as a part of the NHPS?

Lighthouse Schools are a part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Federal Program; they are high performing schools within the NHPS District.  Intra-district magnets and Lighthouse schools are for New Haven resident students only.  Inter-district magnet schools are for all who are eligible to attend school in New Haven.  More detailed answers can be found at our Blog site at:

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love. That being the case, the 2018 Open Streets Summit in New Orleans felt like a family reunion of sorts. It was rejuvenating to see old and new friends who share our passion for open streets and are working tirelessly to create healthier, happier, and more connected communities across the world.

The Justice League

We first published this story about the RVA League for Safer Streets and its co-founders, Jawad Abdu and Paul Taylor, in January. Sadly, Jawad Abdu died of a heart attack on July 13, 2019. We are reposting the article to commemorate Abdu's work and commitment to his community, which will be carried forward by his partners Taylor and Robert Morris.  In less than three years, the RVA League for Safer Streets, a basketball-plus-education program for young men from Richmond communities with high crime rates, has had an extraordinary peace-making impact in the lives of participants—and on the city at large. Its founders were informed by experience and insight wrought by decades behind bars, which is why the League is dedicated to keeping people out of prison, and helping those who are returning to become successful members of their communities. The article that follows contains audio quotes from the League's founders about pivotal experiences in their lives in and outside of prison.

For the Love of the Game—and the Neighborhood

For 13 summers running, Hoops in the Hood has offered a safe, healthy and enriching outlet for Chicago children in nearly 20 historically under-invested neighborhoods. With support from LISC and State Farm, the program has had a tranformative impact on its participants, and their communities.

Walking the Talk of Racial Equity

LISC Phoenix’s Dominic Braham is a 2019 PLACES fellow with the Funder’s Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities (alongside LISC NYC's Grace Chung). When the fellowship brought him to Newark, NJ for a site visit, it sparked a realization: Braham saw that he had to think critically about pushing for racial equity from both an individual and an institutional perspective. In a blog for the Funder’s Network, he shares the toolbox he’s been assembling to challenge the status quo in community development leadership, and to convert conversations about change into action.
