New Era of Collaboration in Lawrence


Lawrence, Mass. (Jan. 15, 2013) – Recognizing a pioneering community-wide plan to engage Lawrence families in the Schools Turnaround,  the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has awarded $700,000 to the team of Lawrence CommunityWorks, the Lawrence Public Schools, and a coalition of public and private sector partners.

It was the highest award given to any of the 20 applicants in the Boston Fed’s Working Cities Challenge and will help launch the Lawrence Working Families Initiative, an unprecedented pairing of LPS and community partners to address the direct connection between families’ economic challenges and student success.
