Sustainable Community Schools

The  Sustainable Community School Initiative is a new initiative that pairs schools with community organizations to increase access to academic and non-academic programs for children and families. In the months ahead, schools and partner agencies will create detailed plans outlining the specific schedule of services that will be available to families, including afterschool programs, health services, family engagement programs, and more.


The Sustainable Community Schools Initiative was created with the goal of improving access to various programs for children and families, and supporting the relationships between teachers, parents, and school personnel – all while creating a supportive environment where classroom and social support services work together to enhance student achievement. The types of services and programming will be tailored to the unique needs of each school community. Examples of the resources school communities will receive include:

  • Health services

  • Social and emotional learning supports

  • Enrichment and recreational activities

  • Homelessness supports and services

  • Family programming
