LEVERAGING COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS TO ADDRESS LEARNING LOSS
Community organizations play a crucial role in bringing essential resources and expertise to schools, complementing and supplementing what the rest of the school day delivers. Community partnerships expand the types of learning experiences to which students are exposed, bringing arts instruction, civics and service, hands-on science, sports and physical fitness, and/or vocational education and career readiness activities into the school schedule. A thoughtfully designed partnership can bring an infusion of new energy, new ideas, and new resources that are critical to building a sustainable ecosystem of support for whole child development and whole communities.
See below for a curated list of community partners local school districts can collaborate with to accelerate students’ success and recovery.
