About the Program

Community Schools are a strategy to organize resources and share leadership to integrate social services into the fabric of the schools. Community Schools are equipped to better serve the needs of families so that students come to school ready and able to learn.

Community Schools offer a family focused holistic approach toward supporting wellness driven by strong, collaborative partnerships among parents, School Building Leaders, teachers and the greater community. In Community Schools, parents are real and active drivers in their families’ success, the school climate is inviting, joyful and positive, and opportunities are endless.

An integral part of this approach is the integration and alignment of school- and community-based services such as mental health services, student support, parent engagement opportunities and enrichment.

Critical to ensuring this alignment and coordination is a full-time Family Coordinator to organize resources and services to bridge the school-home gap.
