Community Schools

In 2023 Eureka City Schools (ECS) 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.

For the 2023-2024 school year, every ECS school site has a Community Schools Liaison and access to a Restorative Practices Support Specialist.
