Abstract

In 1987, Edward Zigler conceptualized the School of the 21st Century, a child care and family-support model with 7 components linked to or based in public schools. In 1969, James Comer conceived of the School Development Program, which mobilizes adults in a school community to work together in planning a school program that promotes optimal student development. Independently, the School of the 21st Century and the School Development Program have been implemented in hundreds of U.S. schools. In 1992, a plan was developed at the Yale University Bush Center in Child Development and Social Policy to integrate the 2 models in a collaborative initiative termed CoZi. In this article, we present the background and description of the 2 models, the story of the first implementation of CoZi in an urban southeastern school, findings regarding implementation of the integrated model, an overview of the expansion to 3 pilot schools in different types of communities, and plans for evaluation and wider dissemination.
