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

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 February 16th, or feel free to reach out.
