COMMUNITY SCHOOLS

A community school is a place and a set of partnerships between the school, community-based organizations, and other resources.  Schools become centers of the community -- open to children, parents, and community members before, during, and after the school day.  Community schools do not follow a specific program; they represent a shared strategy among partners and stakeholders to promote improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities.
