Community Schools helps to foster relationships that allow schools to become centers of learning for the whole community. Schools maximize existing resources in their own community to provide unique opportunities not only for classroom learning, but after-school programming for students, families, and the entire community.
Local businesses, non-profit organizations, municipalities, community groups and individual partners can all play a role by providing opportunities such as volunteers, in-kind assistance or financial support with the goal of expanding and exposing students interests and strengths.
Community Schools Coordinators work regionally to support schools as they develop programs and initiatives in the following key areas:
- Literacy & Tutoring
- Social Competencies & Positive Identity
- Healthy Active Students
- Special Projects & Events
