This Learning That Lasts Field Guide is intended to trigger discussion about ways to integrate and sustain high-quality service-learning, as well as to provide a clearer path to finding and employing the information in the Education Commission of the States' (ECS) 2002 publication Learning That Lasts: How Service-Learning Can Become an Integral Part of Schools, States and Communities. ECS worked with five states over a four-year period, whose efforts in service-learning were documented in Learning That Lasts. It identifies specific policy, practice and capacity examples at both the state and district levels across five domains critical to the integration of high-quality service-learning within a district: vision and leadership, curriculum, professional development, partnership and community, and continuous improvement. This new resource addresses many of the challenges facing service-learning advocates and provides specific strategies to move service-learning from the margin to the mainstream in American schools. The Learning That Lasts Field Guide also expresses new knowledge, strategies and resources gleaned from efforts since 2002--as collaborating states, districts and schools have increased the integration and sustainability of high-quality service-learning through policy, practice and capacity-building.
