What is a community school?

"A community school reflects a β€œwhole child” school improvement strategy where districts and their schools work closely with teachers, students and families, and partner with community agencies and local government to align community resources behind improving student outcomes. With this approach, schools partner with students, families, educators, and community agencies and local government to provide an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement. Many operate year-round, morning to evening, and serve children and adults. Many community schools serve neighborhoods where economic and social barriers to learning are prevalent.
Community Schools strengthen human relationships and reform inadequate education practices and policies to achieve meaningful, equitable, and sustainable change for school communities" (CSLX)
