    Community Schools are a model focused on achieving educational success and developing the social, emotional and physical well-being of students, families, and the community.

    Community schools:

    • offer multiple services through intentional partnerships to provide opportunities, optimize impact, and address identified needs at an individual and community level.
    • close any service gaps that can act as barriers to learning while proactively offering initiatives as part of learning through the whole-child lens. 
    • are equitable and culturally aware.
    • adopt shared leadership, effective coordination, and collective responsibility as the principles for student success, opportunities and services are integrated into the fabric of daily life in school and into the landscape of the school community.
