Community Schools Program

The Community Schools Program supports the capacity of schools as hubs within communities to strategically gather and deploy school-community services and resources in ways that attain better outcomes for students, families and surrounding neighbourhoods.

Community School Philosophy

Community Schools are an integral part of the community. As places of integrated education, public health, social policies and programs, schools can promote student and family well-being in ways that advance core educational goals:

  • Student-School Readiness
  • Attendance
  • Family, community and student engagement
  • Well-being and success
