Community School Coordinators Impact
Community School Coordinators are constantly asking themselves, “How can we do more for our students?” Our coordinators create a safe haven at their sites Family Centers and constantly go above and beyond to help students and families. Whether it's providing a new pair of shoes, assisting in filling out forms, doing a home visit, or getting new prescription glasses our coordinators make it happpen. Below are some highlights from our Community Schools Coordinators most recent impact.
"Parents strongly recommend Garfield not only because of it's Latino community, but also because of its welcoming environment, good percentage of Latino teachers, and Family Center," -Iris Godinez, Garfield Community School Coordinator
"A student was struggling to see the board in class and was not able to get another pair through his families insurance, I used our family assistance funds to purchase the student prescription glasses. Upon receiving these glasses, the student improved in the classroom."-David Linhares, Hoover Community School Coordinator
"A parent was struggling to make ends meet, but was hesistant to ask for help, but when I explained to her that every service provided was confidential we found immediate ways to address her most immediate needs...provding non-perishable food, gift cards, and school supplies."- Elsa Aispuro, Taft Community School Coordinator
