The Robbinsdale School District received a grant to create full-service “community schools” at Cooper High School, Robbinsdale Middle School and the Sandburg Learning Center. “It’s not just the academic component, but the wraparound support that all students and families need,” said Anthony Williams, executive director of community education for the district. The first step is community outreach to see which services like mental or dental care, food shelves, mental health support or extended school days are needed at which facility.
