Community Schools Implementation

“Making every school a community school has to be our collective vision. This has to be the rule rather than the exception.”

Arne Duncan, Former U.S. Secretary of Education

To address troubling disparities, especially for many minority and low- income students, educators must create an environment focusing on non-academic and academic factors influencing student engagement. Community schools is a strategy for organizing community and school human and financial resources around student success. Developed by the National Center for Community Schools and the Coalition for Community, community schools represent a strategy, not a program.

Our team works with schools and districts to implement the community schools strategy and take on an integrated approach to academics, social services, integrated supports, and opportunities that lead to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities.
