Community partnership schools are gaining attention for their ability to improve student achievement, attendance, and behavior, as well as teacher retention. By partnering a school district with a university or college, nonprofit agency, and healthcare provider among other partners, schools can address the holistic needs of students with wrap-around services and support that promotes lifelong success. These long-term partnerships also cultivate community involvement where community members can see the importance and impact of a community-supported school.
Donnie Hale, Assistant Director, and Robert Palmer, University Assistance Coordinator with the Center for Community Schools at the University of Central Florida will share what it means to be a community school and the supports the center provides to schools making the transition. They will discuss the key partners that make up a community partnership school and how the community partnership school model has expanded across Florida to better serve the holistic needs of today’s student and the community.
In this webinar you will learn:
- What a community partnership school is, the core partners involved, and the different way they work together that ultimately help students become college-ready
- The community partnership school landscape in Florida
- An example of how one Florida high school made the transition and what it has meant for their students and their community
- How you can bring the model to schools in your area
