St. Louis Community Partnership Network at a Glance

The Community Partnership Network (CPN) serves the St. Louis, Missouri community as a results-oriented steward of two public schools forged through an innovative initiative of the Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS) district. CPN schools are part of the Saint Louis Public School system, but operate with a unique set of conditions that put critical educational decisions in the hands of teachers and school leaders. Enabled by agreements with SLPS, each CPN school is empowered with a new governance model that will enable greater autonomy, flexibility, as well as strengthen community voice. Learn more here.


The Community Partnership Non-Profit organization registered with the State of Missouri, with a Board of Directors comprised of locally appointed leaders who that oversee the Community Partnership Network. Our work and explanation draws heavily from the Springfield Empowerment Zone Partnership in Springfield, Massachussetts.
