The Center for Community Schools is available to assist initiatives by facilitating planning sessions for a Community Partnership School project. This may include topics such as stages of development; project strategic planning; development of Community Partnership School vision, mission, and core principles; sustainability efforts; and more.
Starting a Community Partnership School can be made easier with qualified assistance. We know that every Community Partnership School will be different and needs a customized approach while still keeping important foundational elements intact. The center staff is available for consultation in person or by phone, email, Skype or phone conferencing. Depending on the stage of development, we assist initiatives from the first steps of planning to full implementation, becoming UCF-Certified, and reviewing strategies and programs to offer recommendations for ongoing improvement.
The center’s staff is available to provide Community Partnership School presentations at meetings and conferences. Let us know your area of focus, and we’d be happy to accommodate your presentation need.
The center gathers and produces resources to assist initiatives. Why reinvent the wheel? Resources include “How to” guides, lessons learned, project development worksheets, webinars and more.
The center offers a series of professional development presentation modules on Community Partnership School stages of development. The modules are aimed to assist partners in the preparation efforts for full implementation and Community Partnership School improvement. The center also will offer webinars on various Community Partnership School components (e.g., after-school programming, parent involvement) necessary for successful implementation.
Community Partnership Schools in Florida have the unique opportunity of becoming UCF-Certified. The center offers certification to those Community Partnership Schools who have reached benchmarks in meeting Community Partnership School standards. Schools receiving UCF-certification qualify for financial support from funds provided by the Florida Legislature.
The center offers evaluation and review sessions to assist initiatives with project development and continuous improvement measures.
