Who Should Attend? Community Partners & Parents

Eureka City Schools recently received a California Community Schools Partnership Program Grant (CCSPP Grant) to support the establishment of new community schools. So what does that mean? A community school is a "Whole-Child" school improvement strategy where the local educational agency and its schools work closely with teachers, students, and families. Community Schools partner with community agencies and local government to align community resources that aim to improve student learning and success.
After receiving the grant, student and parent surveys were conducted at three community school sites; Alice Birney, Grant, and Lafayette. These surveys provided baseline information about the type of school support services that students and families need and desire. Now, we are at the next stage of our work – creating the Community Schools Advisory Council.

If you have an interest in serving on the Community Schools Advisory Council we would love to meet you at the upcoming meeting on March 17th, or feel free to reach out.
