7 Introduction We are truly grateful to Commissioner Elia for sharing the forward in this edition of the Impact Journal. It's in her words that we witness the value gained when schools partner with other entities for the benefit of the students and of the organization as a whole. You may be collaborating for the purpose of pooling vital resources, or developing programs that address issues related to poverty, or joining forces to provide experiences to enhance students' skills, or working in concert with others in order to address mental health-related issues, the true benefactors of such partnerships are always our students. On the state level, the NYS Commissioner of Education, MaryEllen Elia, has championed Community Schools, which are neighborhood partnerships where students receive high- quality academic instruction and mental health support, families can access social services, and communities congregate to share resources and address their common challenges. Partnerships can also reduce costs, as seen in the collaboration between Nassau BOCES and the Valley Stream School District outlined in the article written by Dr. omas J. Troisi and Christian Bowen in this publication entitled, Maintaining Curricular Relevance in the Era of the Tax Cap: A Partnership Study." LaQuita Outlaw, Ed.D. has worked in school leadership for over a decade. Dr. Outlaw serves as a peer editor for Corwin Press and assists several local organizations with organizing professional development opportunities for educators across Long Island. Guest Editor
