Bipartisan Bill Introduced to Expand Community Schools

The Coalition for Community Schools and its nearly 200 partners applauded the leadership of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) for their bipartisan introduction of the Full Service Community Schools Act in the House in a press release issued last week.

Mr. Hoyer has been a longstanding champion for community schools, having introduced this bill in every Congressional session since 2005. Mr. Schock has seen first-hand the positive impact of the three full-service community schools in his district in Peoria, IL. We are grateful for the leadership of Mr. Hoyer and Mr. Schock for a bill that would replicate the success of community schools nationwide. Their comments from the floor are below.

        

Many of the Coalition’s partners supported the Full Service Community Schools Act including: American Federation of Teachers (AFT), National PTA, United Way Worldwide, The School Superintendents Association (AASA), National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), National Education Association (NEA), and School-Based Health Alliance. You can find their supporting comments regarding the legislation, here!
