  3. 3. Community School Strategy A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, services, supports and opportunities leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities. (Coalition for Community Schools, 2016)

All partners conduct sustainability planning from the start (we want to involve long term partners)
  5. 5. Community School Site Coordinator ...implements, integrates, aligns and coordinates the community school strategy at the site level. “Community School Coordinators are the people who push forward this movement and are the key to successful implementation. Without our community school coordinators, the bridge between the school and the community would not be nearly as strong. Community School Coordinators work diligently to create and manage the partnerships that allow students to learn and thrive, and they deserve recognition for all the work they do.” - Coalition for Community Schools - Facilitates Community Schools Advisory Board - Sits on various Building Teams (BLT, RTI, Attendance) - Frequently meets with Parents / Guardians
