Full-Service Community Schools
The Perfect Place to Address the Needs of the Whole Child
With the nation’s recent emphasis on student test scores, The Children’s Aid Society fears that schools are missing the opportunity to be the institutions that help turn out successful young people. School climate and connectedness are the key ingredients for creating healthy schools that produce successful students. These factors are worthy of attention at every level. Bringing the community into schools and making schools the service point for youth development and support services are essential elements of this approach.
