for Community Schools (CCS) works to improve education and help students
learn and grow while supporting and strengthening their families and
communities. Community schools bring together many partners to offer
a range of supports and opportunities to children, youth, families
and communities -- before, during and after school, seven days a week.
CCS' mission is to mobilize the resources and capacity of multiple
sectors and institutions to create a united movement for community
Coalition for Community Schools
- sharing information about successful community school policies,
programs and practices;
- building broader public understanding and support for community
- informing public- and private-sector policies to strengthen
community schools; and
- developing sustainable sources of funding for community schools.
