The principal mission of the Center for Community Schools* is to assist school districts and communities interested in establishing a comprehensive Community Partnership School with planning, implementation and evaluation.
The center promotes the development of community partnerships to include the school district, a health care provider, a university or college, and a lead not-for-profit partner. The partners work together to provide a Community Partnership School with a wide variety of after-school activities and primary, dental and behavioral health care for the students, their families and the surrounding community.
