What Happens in a Community School?
Improving how we do schools: bringing everyone to the table to share decision-making, building bridges, and supporting our students and family needs. Together, we can all help our students succeed!
The more time students spend at school, the more they learn.
And so, Community Schools stay open after school and during school breaks. During that time, they may offer:
• Homework Help
• Student Clubs
When students see learning as a life-long skill, they stick with it more.
That’s why we offer parents and families:
• Adult education classes
• Training for parent leaders
• Access to social services
Adult education programs and social services provide families with skills and resources to improve their lives.
Healthy students attend more days of school.
That’s why school-based health services include:
• Dental Care
• Vision Care
• Medical Care
• Mental Health Counselors
When students feel supported and welcome, they thrive in school.
That’s why Community Schools have more adults who can:
• Make connections with families
Each Community School has a Community School Coordinator that facilitates and organizes services for the entire school.
