Montgomery College / Montgomery County Public Schools Collaborative
The MDCCC AmeriCorps VISTA project at Montgomery College allowed for a strengthened partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools through the ESOL department. As a result of the programs put in place, definite arguments for the benefits of service-learning can be made. Successes included higher grades, lower attendance issues, lower rates of in- and out-of-school suspensions, etc. For more information on the accomplishments for this collaboration and study please see this handout [PDF].
