I’ve written before about Community Schools, and how they can help engage families.
Typically, community schools are ones that host multiple social services, as well as regular school classes.
Two articles about them have recently come-out.
One is titled Community Schools: Reform’s Lesser-Known Frontier and appeared in Education Week.
The other is A Community School Makes the Grade: Principal Eileen Santiago Tells Us How, and is from one of my favorite blogs, Public School Insights.
Both are worth reading.
