Community Schools :
Imagine a school where...
Early childhood learning and development opportunities are available so that children are ready to enter school.

There is a core instructional program with qualified teachers, challenging curriculum and high standards so that young people can succeed academically.

Learning bridges the gap between life and academics-in school and in out-of-school time so students are engaged and motivated to learn and be involved in their community.

Basic physical, social, emotional, and economic needs of young people and their families are met so students learn and thrive in stable, supportive environments.

There is mutual respect and effective collaboration between families and staff, so that families are actively involved with their child’s education.

The school and the community work together to find solutions so that communities are desirable places to live.

Imagine how a school like that would benefit you as an educator...
