Community schools offer an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities.
By bringing in volunteers, connecting students with libraries, and offering credit recovery courses, Community Schools ensure that all kids hit their major milestones.
When kids aren’t healthy, they aren’t ready to learn. Community Schools partner with health providers, such as vision clinics, dentists, and mobile clinics to ensure every kid’s health needs are met and they are ready to learn.
When kids are hungry, need supplies, or warm clothes, they can’t focus on learning. Community Schools offer onsite food pantries, get extra help with donations, and offer school supplies, in addition to free and reduced breakfast and lunch to ensure every family has access to the essentials.
Out-of-school time providers have a unique ability to connect with youth, keep them safe during the afternoon hours when juvenile crimes peak, and teach social-emotional skills and prevention behaviors and – in some cases – to actually extend the school day via academic resources.
