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.

 

 

 

 


 

 

What Is A Community School? We think this report from the American Federation of Teachers explains it quite nicely. Read the ABC Community School Case Study.

Let the kids from Manzano Mesa Elementary tell you what they think a community school is in this video made by the American Teacher’s Federation.
