Community Schools in the News 


‘Community Schools’ See Revival in Time of Heightened Need

"Community schools offer a way to think about how public schools can play a role in addressing issues of inequality and addressing issues created in times of great flux, particularly with heightened immigration and heightened social change."


Establishing a Culture of Student Voice

By co-developing classroom norms and practicing reflection and feedback, you create a culture where students want to be included because their voice matters.

The C/W CS TAC provides technical assistance to school districts and their cross-sector partners integrating a Community Schools approach into a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework. This approach promotes alignment and integration of evidence-based practices for academic, social/emotional, behavioral, and health needs.

We offer support in building upon the existing strengths of school districts to remove barriers to learning and support the whole child, family, and community through technical assistance that includes:
  • Regional Events
  • Webinars
  • Site Visits
  • Phone Consultation
  • Communities of Practice



Using schools as hubs, community schools bring educators, families, and community partners together to offer a wide range of opportunities, supports, and services to students, as well as their families and communities.

Community schools:
  • Provide expanded learning opportunities that are motivating and engaging during the school day, after school, and in the summer
  • Offer integrated health and social supports and services
  • Engage families and communities as assets in the lives of their children
