What are Community Schools? - Fall 2013

Friday, October 18 2013.

Community schools marshal the assets of the entire community, adding value to the neighborhood. 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.
