Community schools make a difference in the lives of children, families, educators and their communities each and every day. By moving beyond the normal confines of the school and partnering with local stakeholders, community schools provide real solutions to the unique problems of the students and families they serve, and are another major step forward in reclaiming the promise of public education. This isn’t just another program: It’s a paradigm shift in the way we think about schools that goes well beyond just providing supports and services for students. Teachers from San Francisco, Cincinnati and St. Paul share how Community Schools support classroom instruction.
