WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SCHOOL?

The community schools model is a strategy (not a program) for organizing school and community resources around student success. A community school is both a place and set of partnerships that help address health, wellness and the social needs of its students, families and the surrounding neighborhood. Schools become centers of the community, open to everyone, all day, every day, evenings and weekends. Community Schools represent a strategy, not a program.

Community-based organizations serve as Lead Partners in community schools, helping to mobilize community assets and coordinate resources, in cooperation with school staff. Each community school’s Lead Partner employs a Director who works in close relationship with the principal and the Community School Leadership Team. The hiring of each Director is made possible through Corporate Partner support.
