Community Schools Initiative

A former kindergarten room at Robert Morris School has been converted into a community center where children and parents can get assistance not just with school work but with many life needs — from doing the laundry to ensuring everybody has appropriate clothing.

Julie Wasilewski, a district social worker, and Julia Rogers, Batavia High School assistant principal, have spearheaded the effort. They presented the community center idea to the Board of Education during Monday’s meeting as part of a presentation of the new Batavia Community Schools Initiative.

The initiative is described as a reform strategy “to promote child well-being, student success, and educational equality.”
