This is the image for the news article titled Community Schools - A Good Reason to Feel Good About Your Community!A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, health & social services, youth & community development & family engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families & healthier communities. 

The following five Boise School District schools, Frank Church, Garfield, Morley Nelson, Whitney and Whittier have been designated as Community Schools. Each will have dedicated space in the school and a staff assigned to plan, organize and implement the Community School model in a way that best serves each school’s neighborhood.

Services provided by Community Schools may include parenting information and support, help getting food and clothing, early childhood resources and volunteer opportunities for community members. Additional resources such as resume and job-seeking skills, computer access and agency referrals may be available.
