Support for Full Service Community Schools In San Pablo, California

Walter T. Helms Middle School, San Pablo’s first full service community school (FSCS), is now the hub and model for the city’s Full Service Community School (FSCS) initiative.
 
Last month, West Contra Costa Unified School District Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution to implement full service community schools throughout the district, beginning with its high schools that have school based health centers and two elementary schools, one with a dental clinic in operation. 
 
The board of education’s resolution comes on the heels of the San Pablo City Council passing legislation to develop a San Pablo FSCS Initiative with the goal of transforming all schools in the city into Full Service Community Schools.
 
The next phase of their initiative will involve intensive community and multiple stakeholder engagement, visioning and the development of goals, the creation of task forces made up of experts and stakeholders to design the service provision and integration elements at the elementary, middle, and high schools in areas of academic achievement, health, safety and social services, youth and community development, and parent engagement and leadership.
 
The City of San Pablo’s FSCS Engine Team plans to convene community stakeholders in January 2013.
