WHO WE ARE

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SCHOOL?


A community school is a public school that is the hub of its neighborhood. It unites families, educators, and community partners to provide top-quality academics, enrichment, and health and social services so that all students can succeed in school and in life.

Our goals are to increase:
● attendance and achievement in school
● support for students, families, and schools
● access to services (health, mental health, financial assistance)
● parent and community engagement and involvement

KSSN’S GOALS ARE TO INCREASE ATTENDANCE and ACHIEVEMENT, SUPPORT students, increase ACCESS AND COORDINATION OF SERVICES, and increase PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.



our work


We use the Coalition for Community School's Community School Standards as a framework for what we do. The standards are designed to engage and support the community schools movement as an evidence-based strategy to promote equity and educational excellence for each and every child, while strengthening families and community.

38% of teachers reported that the number of students present and ready to learn had increased since KSSN started in their schools
