Community Schools

A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities. Schools become centers of the community and are open to everyone all day, every day, evenings, and weekends. Using public schools as hubs, community schools bring together many partners to offer a range of supports and opportunities to children, youth, families, and communities. Partners work to achieve these results: 1) Children are ready to learn when they enter school and every day thereafter. All students learn and achieve to high standards. 2) Young people are well prepared for adult roles in the workplace, as parents and as citizens. 3) Families and neighborhoods are safe, supportive and engaged. 4) Parents and community members are involved with the school and their own life-long learning.
