Community Schools are a strategy, not a program.

Community Schools as a Hub

A strategy for what? A strategy for organizing the resources of the school and community around student success. 

Community Schools are both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources.  Community Schools have an integrated focus on academics, health & social services, community engagement & development, and are open to everyone – before school, after-school, weekends and summers.
