Community Achieves Launch - Feb. 28, 2013 Antioch High School
What is Community Achieves?
MNPS recognizes that our schools are an integral part of the community. Reinforcing the link between parents, the community and schools will foster student success. Through Community Achieves, nineteen of our schools will become Community Schools - offering needed resources and support for parents, students, and the community. Each school will assess its needs and work with partners to offer programs focused on four key areas: College and Career Readiness, Family Engagement,Health and Wellness, and Social Services.
Examples of resources that will be available are Family Resource Centers, health clinics, after school programs, recreation, and classes for adults. Learn more about the community school model.
Research has shown that high performing community schools:
Improve Student Achievement,
Foster stronger relationships,
Improve family stability,
Increase teacher satisfaction,
Create a more positive school environment, and
Boost Community Pride.
Community Achieves will align the assets of students, families, teachers, and the community around a common goal—improving the success of our young people.
