What is a Community School Initiative

What is a Community School Initiative?


A Community School Initiative is a cross-sector enterprise intended to create a network of community schools from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in a single attendance area or linked across one or more school districts. The initiative works to align family, school, and community assets to create community schools—public schools that are hubs of their neighborhood, uniting families, educators, and community partners to provide all students with top-quality academics, enrichment, health and social services, and opportunities to succeed in school and in life.
