“Across the country, superintendents are transforming into community school leaders. Responsible for overseeing the learning and development of our country’s children—including functions such as school nutrition, bussing, safety, finances, community engagement, and so much more—superintendents are recognizing that they need a different strategy to effectively meet the needs of the whole child. Only with a collective approach—one where nonprofit organizations, community members, families, government agencies, higher education institutions, afterschool programs, museums, faith-based groups, and others can rally around the school and its children—will they successfully create the conditions where children can learn and thrive. That approach? Community schools.”
