[ed:  thanks to Doug for the resource responding to Nilofer's query.]

There is a book from Univ of Texas Press titled Community 
Organizing for Urban School Reform by Dennis Shirley. Published 
in 1997. I was given a copy, but have not read it. It appears to be 
(entirely?) about the IAF in TX, and includes a good number of 
case studies regarding individual schools/districts in TX.
