Governance and Policy ResourcesResearch, guidance and services for effective school board governance

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. Schools alone cannot address all of the challenges of closing the achievement gap and educating all students at high levels. A comprehensive, communitywide approach to meeting the needs of the whole child can make a significant impact on students’ educational outcomes and help close the achievement gap among student populations.
