A crucial element in advancing our work’s collaboration is the contribution of a boundary spanner who stands outside the university and school district contexts but has intimate knowledge of both. Mitchell’s role [MERA] has been essential in facilitating data collection and analysis, as well as in negotiating the varying needs of both Samuels [Co-Principal Investigator], at the district, and King [Principal InvestigatorI], at the university.
