OSP Guidance for Partner Logic Models

The Office of Strategic Partnerships wants to learn more about the structures and goals of partner programs and how they align with District priorities. Our goal is to standardize how partners describe their programs to the District so that our office, partner offices, and schools can more easily gain an understanding of these programs. We are asking that partners represent their program using a standard logic model format (the template is available on the sidebar on the right).  These documents will help our office connect partners with the relevant partner offices and with schools that may be interested in hosting these partner programs.

While it can be challenging to fit all of the detail and nuance about a program into a single document, logic models are a great way to quickly impart a high level of understanding of the structure and rationale behind a program.

While many partners may have already developed these models for their programs, we require that the logic models submitted to our office use the template provided on the sidebar to the right.  This will ensure consistency in what our office collects and reviews.

If you are a partner that has never created a logic model, we have put together some resources that we hope you will find useful if you would like to create a logic model for your program.  It is likely that you already know most/all of the information that you would include in a logic model, so our goal is to help guide you in how to organize that information for submission to the Office of Strategic Partnerships.

The works cited in this document include the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide and the Community Toolbox Logic Model Guidance. These resources are referenced throughout our guidance and links to these resources are available on the sidebar to the right.
